Gaines opted to remain in the States this year instead of heading back to Italy. He was selected by the Idaho Stampede in the first round of the NBA's D-League draft process.
He will definitely get some looks from the NBA if he plays like he did last night. Sundiata went for 31 points with 12 assists. He was 11 of 15 from the floor, connected on 2 of 4 behind the arc, and even hit 7 of 11 free throws.
Good quotes from Gaines in the attached article.
