WMBD/WYZZY-TV - PEORIA, Ill. - Marcellus Sommerville is back in the 309 area code but it may not be for long.

Sommerville is in his home town helping with Shaun Livingston's "Pride of Peoria" basketball clinic at Peoria High School However, he's on the lookout for a contract that would send him overseas for a ninth consecutive year.

"It's been a great experience," said Sommerville, a former Bradley University star. "We've seen the beautiful countries, Rome, Paris -- we actually lived there. We've been to Istanbul, lived in Israel last year for a half-season. It's been quite the joyous experience."

Sommerville played in Germany this past season.
