After going the old-guy veteran route with Tracy McGrady and Josh Howard, the Spurs took a different tack recently, bringing in awesomely-named swing man Chamberlain Oguchi for a workout.
Super Sport also reported that Oguchi, who averaged 12 points on 38-percent shooting with Nigeria at the London Olympics, is close to earning a nonguaranteed contract to serve as training camp fodder with the Miami Heat, where he auditioned earlier this month.
Born and raised in Houston, the 6-foot-6, 200-pound Oguchi played for three seasons at Oregon before transferring to Illinois State for his senior year. He’s played for seven — seven!!! — different teams over the past three years, including clubs in Iraq, Venezuela and Lebanon.
To be honest, I can’t remember a single thing about Oguchi from the Olympics. Only skimmed through the France/Nigeria game in which he dropped 35 points, and I’m still a little dizzy from all the 3-pointers Team USA hit in its record-setting rout.
