The International Adventures Of Arinze Onuaku May Commence Soon

One recent Syracuse Orange basketball graduate recently decided not to sit around and wait for the NBA, choosing to pursue a pro career overseas instead. Now, another one will facing the same dilemma.

Arinze Onuaku, who was technically eligible for this past NBA Draft, worked out for New York, Oklahoma City and Cleveland but did not receive any bites. Obviously, the chances of him getting picked were beyond slim. But he did have a great shot at playing in summer league this year. Alas, it's not happening and the lockout is impending so AO has to look elsewhere for employment.

"I think that he's going to have to make a decision on whether to accept an offer overseas or continue to wait (until the NBA labor issues are settled)," Fleisher said. "My sense is that a decision is coming pretty quickly."

Fleisher defined "pretty quickly" as to "within the next month."

Sadly that likely means his days a Bersani Gallery pitchman are over.

AO spent some time with the Rio Grande Valley Vipers of the NBDL this past season. And if you ask me, he's a prime candidate to take the Orange tradition of dominating the Pacific Rim and running with it.
