Point guard Preston Knowles is headed to Croatia. The Louisville product inked with KK Zadar on Friday, adding himself to the team's roster for the 2017-2018 season. Knowles played for two teams during the regular season last year, starting the season with AEK Larnaca in Cyprus and finishing the season with Maccabi Ashdod in Israel.
He averaged 10.2 points and 3.6 rebounds per game for the season, as Maccabi Ashdod finished the regular season with a 13-20 record. KK Zadar could certainly use his help, as the team finished the season in twelfth place in the regional ABA League with a 9-17 record. The team did fare better in Croatia's A1 league, finishing the regular season with a 19-7 record and advancing to the quarterfinals of the A1 playoffs.
