Reeves Nelson turning pro; Pac-12 Tourney in Las Vegas?

As if the saga of Reeves Nelson couldn’t get any more bizarre.
The former UCLA star dismissed for insubordination is planning to sign a professional contract to play in Lithuania.
ESPN’s Andy Katz was the first to break the news Thursday night.
It was speculated Nelson would transfer and sit out a year due to NCAA rules.
THURSDAY AFTERNOON LINKS:
— Here’s our advance of tonight’s game against UC Santa Barbara.
— The News Tribune focuses on redshirt freshman Desmond Simmons, who may receive his first career start.
— If you’re looking for the best dunker in the Pac-12, begin the search in Corvallis, Ore. where Jared Cunningham added another highlight to his long resume during Oregon State’s 93-72 win over Howard at Gill Coliseum. It was the first time in seven years the Beavers had three players score at least 20 in a game. Cunningham had 22, Ahmad Starks 21 and Roberto Nelson, came off the bench and added 20.
— Nice feature from the Oregonian’s Jason Quick who caught up with Brandon Roy, who explained why he decided to retire. In his first public address, the former UW star said: “When I say it, career-ending … it’s hard. Ever since middle school … you want to be the best player, and to know that dream of aiming to be the best is over, it’s tough. Very tough.”
Bud Withers writes about the Pac-12 Network setting up shop in San Francisco.
— Commissioner Larry Scott told Bloomberg Businessweek he’s considering moving the Pac-12 Tournament to the MGM Grand Las Vegas. “People will travel to Las Vegas,” Scott said. Scott took a four-day trip to China to explore the possibility of bringing Pac-12 basketball teams over to play against Chinese squads. Washington will take an exhibition tour of China in 2013 and play about five games. Scott said he’d also like to hold a Pac-12 football game in Beijing in 2013.
