Milwaukee Bucks second round pick Jon Leuer signs in GermanyPosted by Inside Hoops
Marc Stein of ESPN reports:
Milwaukee Bucks second-round pick Jon Leuer, selected 40th overall in the June draft from the Wisconsin Badgers, has signed a contract to play with Skyliners Frankfurt in Germany, according to his agent.
Agent Mark Bartelstein told ESPN.com on Friday that the deal includes an opt-out clause that will allow Leuer to make an immediate return to the NBA when the lockout ends.
Many foreign teams are insisting that players who don’t have existing contracts sign deals that commit them to stay abroad for the entire season. But Leuer is the second Bartelstein client to secure the opt-out provision, joining Boston Celtics second-rounder E’Twaun Moore, who recently signed a deal with Benetton Treviso in Italy.
