http://www.wort.lu/de/sport/bei-den-...b3988708064164

however I cannot confirm this as it doesn't make sense that they'd release Tyshon before ever playing a game and their web site still has Tyshon on the roster

Many ex-Braves are playing exceptionally well overseas...

Walt Lemon, Jr. just had a 10-assist game - he now cracks the Top 10 in his league in assists, and is 6th in the league in scoring at 19 ppg

Lawrence Wright in Finland is 8th in scoring at 18 ppg & 5th in rebounding at 10.7 rpg

Will Franklin is #1 in assists in his Polish league at 6.5 apg

Taylor Brown has his team in 1st place at 4-1


but the real EX-Brave of the week is Anthony Thompson...
he had a truly monster career-type game!
15-19 from the floor, 33 pts, 8 rebs, and a block, in Trepca's 90-75 win...
and getting AT mention among the Players of the Week
He helped his PG get the overall Player of the Week award by finishing many of his 14 assists!

Hey - some good news....

Some other fine weekend performances...
Walt Lemon, Jr. 16 pts, 5 rebs, 2 asst, 3 steals
Tyshon Pickett - no longer with his Luxembourg team, Musel Pikes
Marcellus Sommerville - swept both games this week, now in 1st place 12-1, but Saturday- Cellus 25 pts, 5 rebs, 2 asst

here's a report and video interview - anyone who doubts Tony Bennett is tough has to see this...
Tony was leveled with a vicious elbow but shook it off and led his team to a big win - Tony Bennett IS tough - doesn't just talk tough
