KK Zagreb dismissed DeMarcus Nelson
DeMarcus Nelson(1.93-PG/SG) was not what KK Zagreb wanted after all and so the Croatian team dismissed him a few days after he was signed. The same goes for 2 more of Nelson's friend who came to Zagreb for tryouts. According to Adriatic League website : At the press conference held on Tuesday the club’s president Davor Jelavić confirmed that the club decided to split with Nelson as they are no longer interested in him and that he will leave the city already this week as will his fellow countrymen Jenkins and Thomas who came on a try-out.
DeMarcus Nelson averaged 14.5 points 5.7 rebouns and 2.9 assists in 34 games in his last season in the NCAA as a player of Duke University. He was signed as an undrafted rookie by Golden State but was released in the first week of January.
