From CNNSI.com:

INDIANAPOLIS -- Gregor Fucka, considered one of the top European players, is ready to say "Ciao" to the Italian League and wants to sign a deal with the Indiana Pacers.

Luciano Capicchioni, Fucka's agent, said he's looking for a three-year deal that would bring the 31-year-old naturalized Italian citizen to the NBA and, perhaps, the Pacers.

Fucka, a 7-foot-1 forward, has played for Skipper Bologna in Italy since 1997, averaging 18.1 points last year. Fucka is still under contract, but Capicchioni said there is an escape clause.

Pacers president Donnie Walsh said he had talked with Capicchioni and was interested in Fucka but wasn't sure how he would create room on the roster.

The Pacers' payroll is almost $53 million, but nearly the entire team, barring a trade, is under contract for next season. Reserves Kevin Ollie and Bruno Sundov are the only free agents.

"It would be very conditional if we could pursue him," Walsh said. "It's not the payroll as much as it is that we have 13 players and our own free agents. We may not have room."

--

OK, the guy's name is Fucka?????? Fucka? Damn! I want to be able to talk about Pacers games without using the F word (unless we lose, in which case I tend to use the F word quite frequently).

You'll be waiting a looooong time. NBC doesn't so the NBA anymore.

Marv signed on with TNT I think...but I could be wrong.

And I'll bet it's pronounced FEW-ka...but, then again, I could be wrong.

Ahhh...you're right. I'm not sure why I thought I had heard he was being retained by NBA on TNT. I guess it was just wishful thinking.

You think that's bad, there was a guy in the CFL named Assmann. They even pointed it out on the 2 AM SportsCenter.

Well, at least it isn't pronounced Fucka.

But still... damn, if the dude gets over in the states, we might have little kids going to school with “FUCKA” written on the back of their Pacers jersies! HAHAHAHAHAHAHA! Would that be considered grounds for a suspension from school, I wonder?
