Levallois Metropolitans have announced their signing of big man Julian Wright, according to Sportando and several outlets. Wright spent last season in Italy with Grissin Bon Reggio Emilia, where he averaged 12.5 points and 5.9 rebounds per game across all competitions for the club as his team went 13-17 and did not qualify for the Serie A playoffs. The team also played in the EuroCup, where Wright averaged an impressive 13.6 points per game as Reggio Emilia advanced to the semifinals of the EuroCup playoffs.
The former Kansas Jayhawk joins a Levallois side that narrowly missed the playoffs in France's LNB Pro A league after finishing the regular season with a 16-18 record. Wright has also played in Israel, Russia, Greece and Turkey.
