Arinze Onuaku Heads To The D-League

You've loved the Bakersfield Jam. You've gone nuts for the Reno Bighorns. You've lived and died with the Maine Red Claws. You've given everything you had for the Sioux City Skyforce.

Get ready to have a new favorite NBDL team because Arinze Onuaku is heading there according to Ridiculous Upside:

A rather large dude at 6-foot-9, 260+ pounds (last time we heard from him), Onuaku could become a very good player in the D-League if he's in any sort of basketball shape following the year-layoff. It also won't hurt if he's given Jeff Adrien's minutes if he's claimed by Rio Grande Valley Vipers, a "good possibility" as far as I've heard.

This might just be the opportunity that all you Rio Grande Valley Syracuse fans have been waiting for. We should know within the next few days where AO is heading.

It's a pro career off to a delayed start, but we're glad to see that it's off at all given Onuaku's injury last year.
