Fingleton featured in London Times

An overseas reader brought to our attention an article in yesterday's London Times on UNC redshirt freshman Neil Fingleton and his pro potential.

When Donnie Nelson, an assistant coach with Dallas Mavericks who is one of the most respected judges of European talent in the business, first set eyes on Fingleton at a summer training camp two years ago, he predicted that he could enjoy a career "at least as good as Shawn Bradley's". Bradley, who is 7ft 6in and at present with the Dallas team that plays in the NBA, has recently signed a six-year deal for an estimated $40 million (£28.6 million), having completed an eight-year, $44 million contract.
