|Package deal for 08 Stockholm
Swedish team 08 Stockholm did sign two Court..
.. Side clients today for the upcoming season. The team of coach Jonte Karlsson has been looking for an American PG for a long time and finally signed a contract with Tulsa graduate Rod Earls. Earls just finished his senior year in college at Tulsa where he played both guard positions. He was a big reason that Tulsa was able to win the CBI (College Basketball Invitational) Tournament this past season. Earls will be playing the PG for 08 Stockholm where they are looking for a hardworking player on both sides of the floor and a player who will involve his teammates, as well as being counted on as a scorer. The 2nd signing for Stockholm is Swedish National Team player Mikael Lindquist who joins back 08 Stockholm after a season in Brest, which competes in Pro B (France). The shooting guard will be counted on to help 08 Stockholm to get back to the finals in the Swedish league - where Lindquist led them last time in the 2006-'07 season. The two will team up with a third Court Side Player Joakim Blom. This trio will be counted on to have a huge responsibility for 08 Stockholm this upcoming year. Lindquist and Blom are currently with the swedish national team while Rod Earls is still over in the US and will join the team later this month.
