    He averaged 13.5 points, 3.0 rebounds and 2.8 assists in four preseason games and will see time at small forward and shooting guard this season.

    (Local paper)
    “We were very close,” says Ime, a 6-5, 220-pound swing man who is expected to see action tonight in Portland’s final exhibition game at Sacramento......Udoka’s natural position, shooting guard, ......Assistant coach Maurice Lucas likes Udoka’s versatility.

    It’s surprised me, the multiple positions he can play,” Lucas says.....Another “aye” comes from Kevin Pritchard, Portland’s assistant GM-director of player personnel, who says Udoka reminds him of an accomplished swingman of a previous era, Mario Elie.

    Lakers signed guard Ime Udoka to a 10-day contract.
    Udoka has been playing with the NBDL's Charleston Lowgators and averaging 14.7 points, 6.9 rebounds and 1.5 steals per game. He'll be the Lakers' third shooting guard until Kobe Bryant returns.



    The Knicks signed guard Ime Udoka.
    With Jalen Rose, Quentin Richardson and Stephon Marbury all unlikely to return to action this year, they decided to get some backcourt help. Udoka may get more minutes than Nate Robinson, as Larry Brown has made it clear he's not a fan of Nate's game.

    Blazers free agent guard/forward Ime Udoka missed the game after the death of his father.



    In summation, Ladies and gentleman of the jury, the local papers, national media outlets, his own coach and GM consider him a player who's naturally a guard, as he played early in his career, but is talented enough to play swingman.

    Can I have permission to copy your entire post? I have Udoka in the ABA.

    In theory I suppose 10 owners could suddenly appear out of the woodwork and vote no but I'm gonna change him now since I won't have much access tomorrow.

    If those 10 do show up then Scott gets a 1-day freebie.

    Seriously - I'd have a harder time justifying him to be changed from G to F than the other way around. He didn't leave me with a lot of memories from last season but IIRC, with the Knicks he was always at guard.
