Blassingame (1.75 meters, 29 years old) starred in the Polish League for Energa Czarni Slupsk last season and faced Prokom in the playoff semifinals. He averaged 13.6 points, was second in the league with 6.2 assists and seventh with 1.4 steals per game last season. The well-travelled playmaker has also suited up for AEK Athens in Greece, Maccabi Rishon Lezion in Israel, ENAD in Cyprus, Solna in Sweden and Odessa in Ukraine after a college basketball career at the University of Nevada at Las Vegas.

Leroy Nobles (Photo IUPUI)Nobles is a rookie shooting guard who played college basketball at Indiana University–Purdue University Indianapolis (IUPUI), where he was among the school’s career leaders in several categories. Last season he was named to the All-Summit League First team after averaging 18.3 points per game. He is seventh on the IUPUI career list with 1,464 points, fifth in both free throws made (354) and three-pointers made (186). Nobles signed a one-year contract, but the club has a window to release him after a trial period.
