Brandon Davies is moving from Italy to France after inking with AS Monaco. This is Davies' second stint in France, having briefly played with Elan Chalon in 2015. Davies played with Pallacanestro Varese last season.
Davies averaged 13.3 ppg and 6.5 rpg for Varese last season, including a season-high 27 points and 16 rebounds against Trento Basket on March 6. Davies spent two seasons in the NBA before going abroad, playing for the Philadelphia 76ers during the 2013-2014 season and for the Brooklyn Nets from 2014-2015 until he signed with Chalon in January 2015.
Signing Davies will hopefully put Monaco over the top this season. Despite the club finishing in first place in the ProA regular season standings last season with a 27-7 record, they lost in the semifinals of the ProA playoffs to ASVEL Lyon-Villeurbane 3-1 in a best-of-five series.
