D.J. Strawberry has left Hopoel Holon in Israel to sign with the Croatian team Cibona Zagreb.
Strawberry had an out clause in his contract with Holon, which he exercised after just a few weeks, presumably in pursuit of a bigger paycheck. He averaged a solid 15.6 points, 3.9 rebounds and 2.2 assists in Israel last season, but his NBA career is almost assuredly over. Sat, Sep 15, 2012 10:08:00 AM

D.J. Strawberry has officially signed with Hapoel Jerusalem.

Strawberry had short-lived stints for the Suns, Rockets, Hornets and Lakers, but never had a shot at an NBA rotation. He played in Lithuania last season and seems destined for a career overseas.

The Hornets Friday signed free agents D.J. Strawberry and Darryl Watkins.

We're guessing the deals aren't guaranteed, but then again, the moves still give the Hornets just 14 players on their training camp roster. Strawberry's a point guard who could challenge Mustafa Shakur for the back up role behind Chris Paul, while Watkins is center vying for a bench role on the final roster.

The Rockets waived guard D.J. Strawberry on Friday.

Strawberry was traded from Phoenix to Houston last August. Don't be surprised if he catches on with another team this season, but he won't have any fantasy value.

The Rockets acquired guard D.J. Strawberry from the Suns on Monday, sending Sean Singletary to Phoenix.

Strawberry's contract is only guaranteed if he makes the opening night roster. Rockets GM Daryl Morey said Strawberry "has a shot" at making the team. "He's athletic," Morey said, "can really defend multiple guard spots. Phoenix was starting to use him at [point guard]. That's where he'll be unique." Even odds he makes the team, 1000:1 that he makes an impact in fantasy leagues.

D.J. Strawberry played point guard for the Suns' Summer League team, averaging 18 points and three assists, but the Suns don't think he is ready to back up Steve Nash.

"D.J. is a combo guard, and that's probably not going to change" said GM Steve Kerr. The Suns' search for a pure point guard has been intensified now that Goran Dragic is staying in Europe for another season. Unfortunately for Phoenix, most of the quality FA point guards are already off the market.

The Suns' swapped out rookies on Monday, assigning D.J. Strawberry to the D-League and recalling Alando Tucker.

Neither of these guys will have fantasy value this year, and the Suns are probably just trying to determine what each of them can offer the team.

D.J. Strawberry had eight points, five assists and three boards in Sunday's preseason with over the Bobcats.

Rookie Alando Tucker and Strawberry scored all of Phoenix's points during a 12-5 spurt that extended the Suns' margin to 11 at 87-76 with 4:41 to play. The son of former MLB star Darryl Strawberry is fighting for one of the final spots in the backcourt.

The Phoenix Suns have signed their second-round pick, D.J. Strawberry, to a two-year deal.

Agent Bll Duffy says the first year is guaranteed for the rookie minimum, while the second year is a team option. The Suns now have 12 players signed for the coming season, but they need to carry at least 13 and are hoping P.J. Brown will be that man.

The Suns took Maryland shooting guard D.J. Strawberry with the 59th pick of the draft.

Strawberry offers some versatility with his ability to play both guard positions, and was a fairly hot name prior to draft day. Defense is his middle name, but he might be the worst shooter in the league, and will struggle to make an impact in the NBA.
