Uzoh Signs in Italy, Will Not Return

After splitting one season between the NBDL and NBA, Nets point guard Ben Uzoh has signed a one-year contract with Italian club Sutor Montenegro, according to Sportando. Uzoh will replace point guard Edgar Sosa in Sutor Montenegro’s lineup, after Sosa suffered a broken leg during the FIBA Americas tournament on September 5th.

Unlike most contracts signed by NBA players (and four of the other five Nets to travel abroad) in this offseason, Uzoh’s reportedly does not include an opt-out clause, meaning that he will not return to the NBA once the lockout ends.
