The JJ Hickson Experiment

As you may or may not know, our first NBA player Trevor Booker suffered a leg injury in preseason and had been out for a while... He ended up going back to the States to get it treated so we were down a player. The team ended up signing a player out of Creighton University named Kenny Lawson Jr. on a two month contract to fill in. He's still with us here, but the teams management wanted another NBA player on the team so they ended up signing J.J. Hickson who was recently traded to the Sacramento Kings for Omri Casspi, the legend. Anyways Hickson got here about a week and a half ago and played in our game last week at Holon. This week however, he told the management that he was homesick and wanted to be released from his contract. They worked it out and he was gone Monday morning. He was only here for around two weeks before going back to the U.S. Now we're back to the roster we had for our first two games in which we played well. Hopefully we can pick it up a bit and get back on track. We don't know if the club is going to sign another American so just gotta wait and see
