Decorey Young (201 cm, Cumberland´07) will play in the Middle East for the first time after agreeing terms with Al Shabab (Kuwait, Division 1). Last season the forward played in the Argentine TNA for Instituto Atletico Central Cordoba over 32 games. The American picked up averages of 9.9 points and 4.9 rebounds per game and also finished runner up during the Slam Dunk Contest at the Argentine All-Star Game.
Decorey Young left Cumberland in 2007 and has picked up experience in Chile for Union Espanola Santiago (DIMAYOR League) and the USA. The move to Al Shabab will be the 28-year olds first posting in Asia and the Middle East.
