Former Nebraska Cornhusker Terran Petteway Signs With Pistoia Basket

After a long two-year journey in the NBA process, Petteway is heading overseas to continue his basketball career.

Terran Petteway has reportedly signed a deal having him relocate, heading overseas to play basketball for Pistoia Basket, also known as The Flexx Pistoia of the Italian Series A Basketball League. He's found a home to play basketball and this decision should come as no surprise for a player who continually seems to improve in every level he goes to.

He only spent three years playing in college and his final two seasons were with the Nebraska Cornhuskers. In those two seasons he averaged 18 points per game and just under five rebounds per game while never missing a game.

Despite having one more year of college eligibility left, he declared for the 2015 NBA Draft where he went undrafted and signed with the Atlanta Hawks, joining their Summer League roster. He was waived not long after and picked up by the Indiana Pacers, who eventually waived him as well.

The 6'6" guard played last season in the NBA Developmental League for the Forte Wayne Mad Ants, an affiliate of the Indiana Pacers. Throughout the year he played in 49 games, averaging 11.6 points, 3.4 rebounds and 2.5 assists per game.

In the D-League he showcased flashes of his potential and having games like the one below will get you noticed, turning some heads in the process.

The last time we saw Petteway was his stint in this year's Las Vegas NBA Summer League, playing alongside top NBA Draft pick Thon Maker for the Milwaukee Bucks. In the five games he played 28 minutes while averaging 11.6 points, 3.0 rebounds and 1.6 steals per game. Despite the loss, his most notable performance was his 21 point effort against the Grizzlies.

For a guy who has bounced around quite a bit during these past two years, he also always seems to find a place to play and that can be tough to do. There has been considerable progression since Petteway's days at Nebraska and the Pistoia basketball team is getting a constantly growing player who has proven to hold his own at every basketball level so far.
