Former Ohio point guard D.J. Cooper agreed to terms with Russian basketball club Enisey Krasnoyarsk, his agent said Wednesday. Terms of the contract were not disclosed, other than that there is a provision for Cooper to transfer to any Euroleague club before July 10.
Cooper, who was granted Bosnian citizenship to allow him to compete with the Bosnian National Team, will join fellow Bosnians Josip Nurkic (Denver Nuggets) and Mirza Teletovic (Brooklyn Nets) in the upcoming FIBA Eurobasket qualifying tournament.
Ohio’s all-time leader in assists had success in his first season overseas, as he broke PAOK’s single-season assist record and averaged above 10 points and six assists per game.
