Morris was of course one of the Miners top scorers over the past two seasons, and according to their team website the new season starts in January.

Former point guard Starr Breedlove will join Dobrowolska with CD Zamarat in Spain.

Julyan Stone was also featured in the NBA Summer League and has been added to Indiana Pacers training camp roster.
