After stops in Switzerland, Finland, Estonia China, Argentina and Poland (twice), this will be he first time Upson play in France.
His addition should provide front-court depth to SIG Strasbourg team that is currently on the outside looking in at the LNB Pro A playoffs, as their 9-14 record has them tied for tenth place in the league standings, two games back of a playoff position. The Southeastern Louisiana product joins fellow Americans Scottie Reynolds and Gabe York on the roster.
