    After having watched several games worth of both SEB and BBL ball, and realizing how poorly that reflects on how I spend my time,

    That'd be pretty awesome and would raise his chances of eventually making the NBA significantly.
    He would play in the second level of Europe the Eurocup.

    Like I said many months ago he had already was supposed to go to Greek club AEK Athens. If he does this will be good for him and Spurs. Greek League is second best or best domestic league in Europe so we will find out much better how much game he has.

    No I do not think they do. They are in a transition time this year and last year because of the new ownership. The owners have restricted the club to playing only in Greece. It still does not matter. Greek league is better than the Baltic League which was the international league he was playing in last year.

    So even just playing in Greece only is still quite a jump in level. If he goes back to French League it is a drop in level. Baltic League is better than French League.

    Part of their transition was their recent upgrade in their basketball facilities.

    Bruno, in another thread you said that the Georgian national team has its first game on August 15. Do you (or anyone) know when their training camp starts?
    Training Camp starts 20 JULY

    Yes a league where NBA 6th men Pargo and Childress struggle is not as good as the D-League.

    Too many people here that haven't actually seen him in action making judgements about his game. I have seen this guy in action in the SL and he isn't bad at all. I am not saying that he is NBA ready, but he has a skill set that make him a darn good NBDL player. Yes, he is frail in both his upper and lower body compared to many NBA players, but he has a decent stroke, has good quickness, decent ball handling and great hustle on the court.

    He was the bright spot of the SL league in '07 until he got injured in my opinion. I would be suprised if this guy doesn't get a shot at the NBDL soon.

    Latest report is that Latvian club VEF Riga offered him a contract. This would be a nice step up in level for him. He would play in Baltic League and Eurocup.

    Once again KBP was correct.

    He signed with Latvian club VEF Riga. A nice step up in level for him. He will play in Baltic League which is 6th best regional league in Europe and Eurocup which is 2nd best international league (the level below Euroleague). So this should help give much better information on what his level is.

    I check and VEF Riga must beat Greek club Panellinios to qualify for Eurocup. So actually Sanikidze will not play in Eurocup level next year. No way will his team beat Panellinios. So it seem he is not moving to a higher level.

    Apparently he will never amount to much.

    He signed with Virtus. Big jump for him. Now he will play in what is probably third best domestic league in Europe in current time in Italy.
