Over eighteen games he averaged impressively with 17.4 points, 3.9 rebounds, and 5.9 assists per game.
The 24-year old has spent most of his professional career in the NBA and last season started the campaign with the Portland Trailblazers, but only pre-seasoned with the franchise before departing.
