    Jon is playing in Spain and appears to be hitting an all time low as one of the lowest paid players on a team with a total budget of 6.6 million ( less then the pay of coach K).
    With a total budget of only 5 million Euros ($6.6 million), it is one of the lower-level teams in the league. By comparison, Barcelona has an operating budget of more than 15 million Euros ($19.8 million), with guard Juan Carlos Navarro making 3 million Euros annually ($4 million). The combined salaries of all the Gran Canaria players equal Navarro’s.
    Jon did a great job in his last game coming off the bench and scoring 2 pts. with 5 assist. Jon also enjoys playing in the 5,000 seat gym. He says it makes him feel like he's back at Duke.
    Jon really enjoy living in the dorm type atmosphere and feels that he can increase in scoring and playing time.
    Through 16 games, Scheyer is averaging 7.3 points, 2.1 rebounds and 2.4 assists in 21 minutes.
    We all hope the best for Jon since he was such a great player at Duke. Good luck Jon, hope to see you back in the D League soon.
