Lots of buzz on the web about the possibility of Micah signing with Valencia of the Spanish ACB, as he gained his release from the Maine Red Claws. From Eurobaske (http://basketball.usbasket.com/D-League/news/Maine_Red_Claws_waive_Micah_Downs/313982)t:

Maine Red Claws waive Micah Downs

Maine Red Claws released 27-year old swingman Micah Downs (203-86, college: Gonzaga, agency: Priority Sports). In 48 D-League games he had very impressive stats: 16.0ppg, 5.8rpg, 2.4apg and 1.5spg this season. Downs was called during the season by the Boston Celtics.
The last season he played at Assignia Manresa (ACB) in Spanish league. In 28 games he recorded 11.3ppg, 3.6rpg and 1.4apg.
The previous (10-11) season Downs played at Ford Burgos (LEB Gold) in Spanish league. In 43 games he recorded 13.5ppg, 4.0rpg and 1.7apg that season. He helped them to make it to the final. Quite impressive season as he was named to Eurobasket.com Spanish LEB Gold All-Imports Team and 2nd Team.
Part of previous (09-10) season Downs spent at Leuven Bears (Ethias League) in Belgium. In 10 games he recorded 12.4ppg, 3.6rpg and 1.3apg. He also spent pre-season at KK Zadar in Croatian league that year. In 5 Eurocup games he recorded 11.0ppg and 3.6rpg. Downs also played 19 games in Adriatic League where he recorded 7.6ppg, 3.3rpg and 1.0apg.
The list of the past achievements is quite long as his college team won WCC Tournament in 2007 and 2009.
Downs graduated from Gonzaga University in 2009 and it is his fourth season as a professional player.
He could be described: A very athletic forward who showed that he's not only a fantastic leaper some years after graduation. Can score at will, grabs lots of rebounds, runs up and down on the court with great quickness.
