Yup - that's what it says.

Chrome translated the page for me. It's obviously not a perfect translation - but I'll post it here:


Wallop of Cholet club that has hired Ben Uzoh , as confirmed by her agent Olivier Mazet.

Waiting for a contract with the Bucks, the NBA player, past the Lokomotiv Kuban, finally decided to rediscover Europe and it is in Pro A that is landing.

Uzoh began last season in Cleveland following the injury to Kyrie Irving in February. He then joined the Raptors.

Come on Jballer. Was it that hard to google "Ben Uzoh Europe?" We excuse your constant misspellings of all NBA players names on a regular basis, but that's just plan laziness.

Cholet reinforced its roster at position 1. The team penned a deal with former NBA player Ben Uzoh (191-PG-88, college: Tulsa). He played for Toronto Raptors at 2012 NBA Pro Summer League in Las Vegas averaging 6.6 points, 4.4 rebounds and 3.8 assists. Uzoh finished last season with the Raptors as well. He joined them in March collecting 4.8 ppg, 3.9 rpg and 3.7 apg for 16 NBA games. Uzoh started the season with Lokomotiv Kuban and after two games moved to the New Jersey Nets. However, he did not appear in any official game with them and later moved to the NBA D-League team Rio Grande Valley Vipers. There Uzoh shined with 14.9 ppg, 5.9 rpg and 3.9 apg for 20 appearances. After that the player moved to Cleveland Cavs, where he had 2 ppg and 2 rpg and finally signed with Toronto in March. In 2010/11 season Ben Uzoh had 3.9 ppg, 1.7 apg and 1.5 rpg in 41 NBA games with New Jersey. He graduated at the University of Tulsa two years ago.

he'll get more burn, he'll get to make more mistakes and play through them. Most importantly he'll make more money.

Loved the way he played, you could tell he generally wanted to make the most of his opportunity, but he is just not a regular NBA player yet

Still I know Uzoh had "evidently" a poor summerball performance... which is why the Raps went to go get JLuc3 ...at least that is the theory...

But he played well here during the regular season with nothing on the line.

I do wich him luck
