Robert Vaden signs to play next year in Europe

I got an email about this, and I’ve been searching all morning for a good source to confirm it. I think I’ve got it. Per Eurobasket, Ridiculous Upside and Sportando.net:

Robert Vaden, selected in the last NBA draft with the 54th overall pick by Charlotte Bobcats, inked a contract with Imola, in Italia Legadue. Vaden, in his senior year with UAB Blazers, averaged 17.6ppg, 4.9rpg and 2.1apg. His best season was in the 2007/08 when he averaged 21.1ppg.

So it doesn’t look like Vaden will be part of either the Thunder or 66er roster this season. He definitely didn’t do much for himself during the Summer Leagues, averaging under five points a game and around 40 percent shooting. Not good for someone that was brought in to be a shooter. That’s one less roster spot to worry about, meaning it’s pretty likely that Kyle Weaver will be part of the active 12-man roster come opening night. This whole roster situation is becoming clearer by the day.
