News:The Sports Xchange notes that Shan Foster is headed to Europe for the upcoming season. The second-round pick out of Vanderbilt signed a one-year deal with a team in Italy.
Analysis: Going overseas allows Foster a chance to work on his game, while the Mavs retain his NBA rights. Reyshawn Terry and Ronnie Seibutis, second rounders in 2007, followed the same path a year ago. The move looks like it paid off for Terry, who came back to the States stronger and more polished. He's expected to be in training camp in October. Seibutis is returning to Europe again this season.
