Charles Barton (193 cm, Oregon St. ’14) is heading to Givova Scafati Basket (Italy-Serie A2). The move to Italy will be the first for Barton as he moves over after playing 16 games with S. Oliver Wuerzburg (Germany-BBL). In Germany, the guard averaged just 11.2 mpg while scoring 2.5 ppg and dishing out 1.4 apg.
Barton found more playing time last season with the Sundsvall Dragons (Sweeden-D3). The Swede played 35.9 mpg and recorded 18.0 ppg and 5.9 apg in his second season with Sundsvall. His first year came in the 2014/2015 season where he just played 23.5 mpg with 10.2 ppg. Barton is highly regarded in Sweedish basketball. The Sweedish national program has included Barton in their system since he was 18 when he played with the U18 team. His time with the national team ended when he went on to play at Oregon State for the 2011/2012 season.
