Tyrese Rice

Rice was a draft candidate in 2009, but went unpicked. The Boston College guard went to summer league that year with the Wizards, and now joins the Jazz. Rice spent his first professional season in Greece, where he averaged 11.7ppg, 2.3rpg and 2.4apg, shooting 49% from two point range, 30% from three and 81% from the line.

Ahmad Nivins did, but he was drafted, which helped no end. And Texas Tech shooter Alan Voskuil signed early with Fuenlebrada, but he has a Danish passport which grants him EU status. He also didn't play a game for the team before moving to a LEB Silver team called Matchmind. So it's a poor list.) On the year Rice has averaged 12.8 points and 2.2 assists per game for Panionios.
