More on Tre

We had a brief note here yesterday that Tre Simmons was in Israel.
Here’s a list of Americans playing in Israel right now — Tre’s real name is Chester. Here also is the home page for Tre’s team.
There are some interesting names on the list of Americans playing there, including Lee Nailon, Ed Cota and Noel Felix, who had a brief run with the Sonics.
As for how much money these guys make, every league and situation is different. But it can be pretty lucrative — generally a lot more than playing in the D-League. As a for instance, Doug Wrenn told me he made $75,000 for three months in the Philippines.
Wrenn, by the way, is still playing for this team in China.
