Suns second round pick Alex Oriakhi has signed with France's CSP Limoges, according to Emiliano Carchia of Sportando.  Phoenix drafted the center with the 57th overall pick in the 2013 Draft.

Oriakhi began his collegiate career at UConn where he served as the starting center for the Huskies' 2010/11 championship team.  Then, after a year in which he saw a diminished role with the addition of Andre Drummond and the Huskies were banned from postseason play for 2013, he transferred to Missouri.  The big man averaged 11.2 PPG, 8.4 RPG, and 1.6 BPG in his final year on campus.
