According to Michael Rothstein of, Durham has been playing American Football for the Parma Panthers in Italy.

Durham became the equivalent of Julio Jones, Antonio Brown or Calvin Johnson in Parma. He caught 46 passes for 944 yards and 11 touchdowns, scored on a punt return and threw a touchdown pass as well last season. Durham caught 55 passes for 699 yards and three touchdowns in the 27 career games he played in the NFL.

Durham’s time in Italy has Womens Evgeny Svechnikov Jersey run its course and he’s hanging up his helmet and cleats after two years with Parma, but it’s an experience he thoroughly enjoyed.

You experience life and experience culture and see things and visit places and get to be a part of things that are so different, Durham said. So much different than the U.S. and American football in my head, it’s a different experience.

Their next task is completing negotiations with restricted free agent Dylan Larkin on a multiyear contract.

After scoring 11 points in each of his first two summer appearances, Bamba wasn’t particularly involved in the offense against Ayton and the Suns. He took just four shots in 22 minutes, all of them within 9 feet, meaning we didn’t see any of the solid form Bamba showed on a corner 3 Sunday night.

Ayton nearly came up with the day’s most impressive block, racing from midcourt after a turnover in an effort to chase down Magic second-round pick Melvin Frazier Jr. as Frazier shot a layup. Ayton got to the shot but contacted Frazier in the process, drawing a shooting foul.

There’s plenty of development ahead for both Ayton and Bamba. Ayton will have to cut down on turnovers to become a more efficient go-to option on offense and improve the angles he takes defensively, while Bamba must get in the weight room and find Kawhi Leonard Youth Jersey ways to create more offense. Nonetheless, Monday’s matchup offered a glimpse of what’s to come for both centers. — Kevin Pelton
