After being released by the Sacramento Kings in October 2014, Deonte Burton (185 cm, Nevada’14) has opted to head to Europe and has signed with Ratiopharm Ulm (Germany-BBL). He will reinforce the club’s backcourt during his rookie campaign and will be tested in a very tough and competitive league.
During his senior year at Nevada, the 23-year-old Burton posted averages of 20.2 ppg and 4.4 apg. It was a steady improvement compared to his 2012-13 season where he averaged 16.3 ppg and 3.6 apg. He was named to the All-MWC 1st Team and the NABC Division I All-District 17 1st Team in 2014.
