    No furthwer developments regarding Montreal's NBA expansion pursuit obviously due to the pandemic these days. Also there's isn't anything new announcements about Montreal's more likely entry in CEBL or NBL Canada in the immediate years, although we may see an announcement soon online.

    Karim Mane is this year's NBA international draftee mystery man even to Canadian basketball followers. What is certain is that his potential both in the NBA and Team Canada can further add Montreal's NBA contingent straight from Montreal's high school hoops via Vanier College.

    Karim Mane didn't hear his name called on draft night in November. Matter of fact no Canadian actually did then. However, the extremely athletic combo guard Mane did manage to participate in the Orlando training camp...and made the Magic roster! Actually signed a two-way deal with Orlando and its affiliate Lakeland on November 27. The Dakar, Senegal-born player was offered scholarships from Kansas, Michigan St., Marquette, Maryland, Texas, and Wake Forest. Makes you wonder if he did take any one of them, even if for only a year, would his draft profile and selection skyrocket and be a first round selection?

    Meanwhile, Mane scored his first NBA points being on the court for only four minutes by making his two free throws in the fourth quarter that contributes to the Orlando Magic's 105-94 victory over Cleveland on January 6:

    Montreal native and former 10-year NBA player (plus two years with Argentina's San Lorenzo) Joel Anthony returns to his Hamilton Honey Badgers Director of player development consultant post. Hopefully this year he'll have far greater player interaction

    Chris Boucher continues in improving game and wowing his Raptors teammates despite his skinny frame and unorthodox style forcing him to come off the bench behind Aron Baynes. He's among the NBA's leaders in the blocked shots categories and scored a career high of 26 points:
