Rick was Ian's coach on Pananthinaikos for 2 seasons.

Ian has been primarily a bench player for 4 years, granted on one of the best teams in the world outside of the NBA.  He was pretty highly paid.  May be time to hang it up.  He's not much of a contributor at that level anymore.

Ian signed a new contract with Panathinaikos in September.

Yikes

I had a rare day in the office today so I was completing multiple projects at once. I will blame those errors on multi tasking and stealing company time.

There are several more active former Billikens but for various reasons they are not on a team or their seasons have not started yet.  As far as I can tell these are all the former Billikens actively playing in leagues today.

Reggie Agbeko - Signed on with Agricola Villarobledo CBV in the Spanish Silver league.  Agbeko is in the starting lineup for the team which has started off their season 1-2.  Reggie is averaging 6 points and 6 rebounds.  Villarobledo is located about 100 miles SE of Madrid.

Jermaine Bishop - Bishop signed with Hagen in the German Pro A league, one step below Bundesliga.  Several Billikens have played in this league including Chris Heinrich and Dwayne Evans.  Hagen is 2-0 on the season.  Bishop is their 2nd leading scorer at 11 points, also averaging 3 rebounds and 3 assists.  Hagen is located in Western Germany about 50 miles east of Dusseldorf.

Brian Conklin - After spending last season with Limoges, Conklin has returned to play for Nanterre this season in the French ProA league and Eurocup.  Nanterre is currently 3-1 in ProA play and 2-4 in Eurocup pool play. Conklin is averaging 10 and 6 with 53% shooting in ProA play while he is tallying 8 and 3 in Eurocup competition.  Nanterre has an interesting wrinkle to their team as they have 16 year old 7’2 Victor Wembayama on their team, the top big man prospect in Europe since Dirk.  He plays on their junior team but has gotten in games with the SR team and works out and practices with the men.

Dwayne Evans - Evans played last season in Italy’s top league and right now is playing in Japan’s top league which Rob Loe also spent some time in last year.  Evans plays Ryuku Golden Kings in Okinawa.  The Japan league has some very high end players among their imports like Rayvonte Rice, Jordan Hamilton, Nick Fazekas, and Jack Cooley.  Majority of the league is comprised of less talented Japanese players.  Evans is having his best pro season.  Ryuku is 11-2 and in first place.  Evans is averaging 20 points, 10 boards, 3 assists and 2 steals.  He joined the team late and has only played in  games but they have won every game he’s played.  He even went off for a 37 point, 14 rebound performance a few weeks ago.

Ingvi Gundmundsson - Ingvi has moved on from the Icelandic league and is now on the roster of the Dresden Titans of the German B league.  Through 4 games he has yet to make an appearance in a game.

Adonys Henriquez - Henriquez left South America and is now playing for Ourense in the Spanish Gold league, 1 step above where Agbeko plays but below the major Spain league.  Henriquez averages 12 points and 4 rebounds through 4 games for 1-3 Ourense.  Ourense is located in NEWSpain, above Portugal about 50 miles from the Atlantic.

Tramaine Isabell - Isabell plays for MZT Skopje in the Macedonian top league.  Stats are hard to come by but Skopje is in first place with a 12-2 record.  Stats are only available from the first 3 games and Isabell had 17 points, 4 boards and 8 assists and appears to be the best player in the league or close to it.  Skopje is located in Northern Macedonia, near the border with Kosovo.

Mike McCall - McCall has caught on with AB Contern in the Luxembourg Total League.  He is putting up solid numbers, 16 points, 5 rebounds, 4 assists, 2 steals through 4 games for his 2-2 squad.  Milik Yarbrough also plays in this league.  Contern is located just minutes outside Luxembourg City.

Zeke Moore - Zeke is playing for Pardinyes Lleida in the Spain Silver league, same as Agbeko.  Pardinyes is 0-4 on the season and Zeke is averaging 13 points and 4 boards.  Lleida is located in NE Spain, 100 miles west of Barcelona.

Willie Reed - Reed is playing for Budocnost Podgorica in Montenegro.  He is participating in their play in the EuroCup play (in a different pool than Conklin) and in the ABA, which is an international league of Baltis State teams.  It doesn’t appear he is playing in any Montenegran league games.  In Eurocup play in which they are 3-2 Reed has averaged 13 and 8 on 70% shooting.  In ABA play Reed is averaging 7 and 7 and they are 4-0.  Podgorica is located in South Central Montenegro, on the shores of Skadar Lake.

Kwamain Mitchell - Took me forever to find him.  European reporting outlets are referring to him as Lamar Mitchell now. Kwamain is now playing in Serbia after being in Russia for several seasons.  His team is KK Miladost in the KLS, the top Serbian league.  His team is 6-1, near the top of the league and Kwamain is averaging 16 points and 6 assists.  Miladost is located in Zemun, just north of Belgrade on the Danube in Central Serbia.

Thank You. Love reading that

This is a real question I do not know. How much can a pro basketball player make by playing for a B or C league in Spain, or in Israel? Any ideas?

That really depends on the team and the league some teams are b level and some are c level the b level usually get paid like other b level's and c level's the same though it depends on the accuracy of the level and the skill of the player. Nothing is certain. Also it's possible there is a COVID 19 outbreak on any team which will further cloud the picture and any team could end up cancelling their entire season and no one will make any money

Most European teams also pay expenses. Apartment,Car etc. Don’t know about other countries but imagine it’s the same.

Mike McCall update

Apparently his new team in Luxembourg has canceled the rest of their season. McCall has gone back to the BBL in England and will be playing for the Cheshire Phoenix. 2 seasons ago McCall was an All Star in this league.

The fact that the shunned players of the Jett era, McBroom and Grandy end up being the most successful is beyond annoying 

success is sadly always equated with material wealth.
