Ramon Harris signs contract in Venezuela

ramonvenezuela

This one slipped through the cracks the other day while we were hatin’ on Tennessee but there’s some good news for one former Wildcat. Our man Ramon Harris has signed a contract with Trotamundos in Venezuela’s LPB league. The LPB league is the top level of basketball in the Land of Grace, and one that hopefully provides good health insurance/injury coverage for its players.

Here is the statement from Trotamundos’s official website:

TROTAMUNDOS RECIBIÓ A MICHAEL SLOAN Y RAMÓN HARRIS

El equipo de Trotamundos de Carabobo recibió este martes en la madrugada a los dos primeros importados que se estarán disputando los puestos para integrar la plantilla del equipo azul para la próxima temporada que comienza el próximo 26 de este mes como visitantes en Barquisimeto.

Con apenas unas pocas horas de sueño los jugadores Michael Sloan y Ramón Harris participaron en la práctica matutina bajo las órdenes del Director Técnico Iván Deniz.

El jugador estadounidense Michael Sloan, se puede desempeñar en los puestos 2 y 3, tiene 26 años de edad, es muy buen lanzador de larga distancia y mide 1,96 metros de estatura, ha desarrollado su carrera entre los Estados Unidos y el baloncesto chino

También entrenó Ramón Harris, puesto 3-4 que viene de la Universidad de Kentucky, nacido en Anchorage, Alaska, este jugador de un poco más de 2 metros estuvo este año en el campamento de Rockets de Houston.

I don’t know what any of that says but I think it mentions something about Ramon Harris being awesome and Trotamundos now having the best on-ball defender in the LPB league.

Venezuela, you’re about to feel the wrath of “El Asesino De Alaska.”

    I just hope that crazy dictator down there isn’t a fan of the other team and has him arrested for life or something.

    So, Ramon is a green-winged Macaw?

    I am failing to appreciate the symbolism…or was this just a cheap and easy way to post his pic?

    As the stepping stone to the NBA, we will be awesome next year! We will lose Lamb,Jones, and Knight. Start all over with another group of freshmen. Struggle in the SEC, and then lose them on draft night. But maybe we can hang a banner for most One and Dones? We will never have an experienced team that can go far in the tourney, but man next year is going to be crazy!

    This is a close English translation:
    TROTAMUNDOS HOSTS MICHAEL SLOAN AND RAMON HARRIS
    Early Tuesday morning Trotamundos hosted the first two foreign players contending for roster spots with the blue team for this season beginning the 26th of this month on the road at Barquisimeto.
    With just a few hours of sleep, the players participated in an early morning practice under the watchful eye of coach Ivan Deniz.
    US player Michael Sloan can play the 2 or 3 position, is 26 years old, and is a very good long range shooter. He is 6-5 and has played in the United States and China.
    Harris, 6-7 and a 3 or 4, also worked out for the team and comes from the University of Kentucky. He also participated in the Houston Rockets try-out camp this year.
    Translation note: This says nothing about signing a contract or being guaranteed a roster spot.
