The Finch Formerly Known As Gold

Pried loose from the bench

Maciej Lampe, nailed to the Hornets' bench for part of last season, then traded to Houston, where he was promptly epoxied to the Rockets' bench, will apparently get some serious minutes this season:

Lampe signed a one-year deal with Russian Dynamo St. Petersburg yesterday. Lampe, last season with NO Hornets (2 games) and Houston Rockets (4 games) is satisfied and wants to prove his basketball skills. "I'm very happy with the decision. I could also sign with Chicago Bulls, but I didn't want to be benched all season, I want to play! People from Russia confirmed that I will play 25-30 minutes per game — and this is good, very good option for me."

Lampe played two years in Spain before signing with the NBA in 2003.
