Mickaël Gelabale (born May 22 1983 in Pointe-Noire, Guadeloupe) is a French professional basketball player currently playing for Cholet Basket in the French Pro A.[1] He is a 6'7", 215 lbs. small forward, with athleticism as his main asset.


Club career

Gelabale started playing professionally with Cholet Basket, averaging 10 points and five rebounds per game in his final season (2003-04). Subsequently, he joined Real Madrid, being used in the side's rotation during two seasons (about 23 minutes per game combined).

At the end of his first season, Gelabale was selected by the Seattle SuperSonics in the second round (48th overall) of the 2005 NBA Draft, but opted to stay in the Spanish capital instead of immediately joining the NBA.

On July 12, 2006, he signed a two-year contract with the Sonics, joining Johan Petro as the second French player on the team. Barred by both Ray Allen and Rashard Lewis (in 2006-07) and rookie Kevin Durant (2007-08), Gelabale appeared sparingly for the team, also tearing his anterior cruciate ligament midway through his second year.

On March 29, 2009, he restarted playing, one year after his injury, with the Los Angeles D-Fenders in the NBA D-League.

On September 28, 2009, the Los Angeles Lakers of the NBA signed him to their practice squad to give him a chance at a long-term contract, but he was waived on October 10, 2009, two weeks before the beginning of the 2009-10 regular season. He then signed with Cholet Basket in the French Pro A on November 26, 2009.[1]

International career

In September 2005, Gelabale helped the French national team to the bronze medal at the 2005 European Championship.
