Ryan Gomes will be an assistant coach on the Nets D-League team this upcoming season.
"I look back at my career and I am satisfied with what I did as a professional athlete," Gomes said, announcing his retirement from professional hoops. "Last year, when I was in Spain, I really didn’t play, and I didn’t want to walk away from the game that way. If this coaching opportunity came last year, I might have said, ‘I want to play one more time.' But now, I walked away from playing the game." Aug 31 - 12:24 PM

Veteran F Ryan Gomes has signed a contract to play in the D-League.

Now 33 years old, Gomes' chances of returning to the NBA are slim.
Jan 5 - 5:12 PM

Ryan Gomes signed with Baskonia of Spain.

He can opt out of his deal after the first round of the playoffs to join other Euroleague teams. Gomes was very quiet last season and the biggest news was that he was traded from OKC to Boston.

Ryan Gomes will be included in the Courtney Lee-Jerryd Bayless deal and be sent to Boston as part of a three-team trade.

Once the deal goes through, Boston is expected to waive Gomes. The Thunder sending Gomes away is to create a little extra room under the luxury tax, which could allow them to make another move. Gomes has no fantasy value.

Free agent forward Ryan Gomes has reached agreement on a one-year deal with the Thunder.

Gomes played in Germany last season and after the Thunder whiffed on everybody not named Derek Fisher in free agency, this is the end result. Gomes' knee is a question mark and the lowly Bobcats passed on him earlier in the summer. On the bright side for Thunder fans, Kendrick Perkins is still around to hike the ball between his legs after the opening tip.

Free agent Ryan Gomes, who played in Germany last season, recently worked out for the Spurs and Thunder.

"I was never a superstar kind of guy, I was more of fill-in guy, but I've always been consistent," he said. "If I go to a team like [the Thunder or Spurs] I know what my role is already." He's a longshot to make an NBA team at this stage of his career and he's already looking forward to eventually being a coach.

Ryan Gomes has signed in Germany with the Artland Dragons.

Gomes is collecting his $4M salary after being amnestied by the Clippers and will now head to Germany, but it's a bit surprising he couldn't find a job stateside.

Ryan Gomes is unlikely to join the Bobcats training camp.

Gomes was expected to work out for the Bobcats this week, but it sounds like Charlotte wasn't thrilled with whatever they saw. Gomes will continue to look for a new team after the Clippers cut him loose in July.

Unrestricted FA Ryan Gomes is "expected" to work out for the Bobcats next week.

Gomes has really received no interest on the open market since being amnestied by the Clippers, but with the Bobcats continuing to search for veteran frontcourt help, Gomes could latch on in Charlotte. If signed, he won't have fantasy value.

Clippers waive F Ryan Gomes in order to sign G/F Grant Hill.

Hill will officially join the Clippers in the near future, while Gomes becomes the latest amnesty casualty. It was initially believed that Hill would join the Lakers, but he's now heading toward a crowded bench role, backing up some combination of Caron Butler, Lamar Odom, Chauncey Billups and Jamal Crawford for the Clippers.

Ryan Gomes (illness) played 30 seconds in Friday's game.

We'll pull him off the injury report, though we doubt anybody out there cares.

Ryan Gomes (illness) did not play on Monday against the Wolves.

Gomes is buried in the rotation and has no fantasy value.

Ryan Gomes admitted that he's in a "slump," but is working hard to improve.

Gomes was realistic about his dip in minutes saying that he is just not playing well right now. Gomes said that he's got to play with confidence rather than with a timid approach, but it's probably hard for him to do that knowing he could be yanked off the floor if he makes a wrong decision. He's averaging just 2.6 points on 33.7 percent shooting in 14 minutes per game.

Ryan Gomes started for injured Caron Butler (knee) on Friday, scoring 11 points on 4-of-12 shooting (including two threes) with six rebounds and one steal in 36 minutes.

Gomes is only worth a look for spot action if Butler remains out, and is prone to disappearing. Use him in that capacity at your own risk.

Ryan Gomes will start for injured Caron Butler (knee) on Friday against the Wolves.

Gomes is only worth a spot-start if you're desperate, as there is no real precedent for him being productive in his current role. The better play will be Mo Williams, as it's possible the Clippers will match up with the Wolves smaller unit by playing a three-guard lineup including Williams, Randy Foye, and Chauncey Billups. A quicker pace is theoretically expected, but this is lockout basketball so who knows.
