Emmanuel Mudiay to Earn $1.2M in Chinese League

Just last week, consensus "cotdamn this boy is goooood" basketball star Emmanuel Mudiay was heading to SMU, to play for Larry Brown. Then he decided to spend that year—he was always going to be a one-and-done player—playing overseas. Whether that has anything to do with his eligibility (he went to Deion Sanders' floundering Prime Prep) is up for debate.

Just last week, consensus “cotdamn this boy is goooood” basketball star Emmanuel Mudiay was heading to SMU, to play for Larry Brown. Then he decided to spend that year—he was always going to be a one-and-done player—playing overseas. Whether that has anything to do with his eligibility (he went to Deion Sanders’ floundering Prime Prep) is up for debate.

What isn’t up for debate is that he’s making bank next year. According to Yahoo Sports’ Adrian Wojnarowski, Mudiay will earn $1.2 million next season playing for Guangdong of the China Basketball Association. The deal recalls Brandon Jennings three-year, $1.65 million deal with Lottomatica Virtus Roma in 2008, plus his $2 million deal with Under Armour. Whether Mudiay’s career will reflect Jennings’ (that would be OK, but not great) or Aquille Carr’s (that would be an abject failure) is anyone’s guess.

Until then, just read this fun Google Translated article about Mudiay that calls him a “professional manufacturer.”

Mavs’ Fallback Plan: Zaza Pachulia

After DeAndre Jordan's epic pump fake, the Mavs have acquired veteran center Zaza Pachulia from Milwaukee. He's on an expiring contract, so that doesn't impact their situation going forward, and he is serviceable. One thing: if Hotel Zaza does not figure out some sort of promotion involving him, someone over there should be fired. (Also, apparently the ghost of Deron Williams is looking to stop haunting Brooklyn and move back home-ish. Hey, sure, why not.)

Jim Knox Does It Again

Whether the Rangers are good or bad, you can always depend on reporter Jim Knox to deliver. His interview with two (WINK) enthusiastic Irish fellas taking in their first baseball game definitely qualifies. Thank you Knoxie, thank you Killian and Shane, and thank you Deadspin.
