Elijah Milsap signs with Shanghai Sharks

Elijah Milsap (198 cm, Alabama’10) has signed in China with the Shanghai Sharks. Elijah Milsap last played for the LA Defenders in the NBA D-League. Millsap, whose brother Paul plays for Utah Jazz, will be playing his first season in Chinese basketball. A graduate of the University of Alabama, Millsap went undrafted in the 2010 NBA draft before getting picked up firstly by the Oklahoma City Thunder and then with the LA Lakers.
