Rodrigue Beaubois To Play In Belgium

March 26 at 4:29pm CDT By Chuck Myron

Former Mavericks guard Rodrigue Beaubois will play for Belgacom Spirou in Belgium, the team announced via TwitterLa Nouvelle Gazette originally reported the news (translation via Sportando). Beaubois was in talks with the Celtics about a 10-day contract last month, but a deal never materialized, and earlier this week we heard the 26-year-old turned down an offer to play in Italy and was set to audition for a French team. Beaubois, the 25th overall pick in 2009, has been out of the NBA since his rookie contract expired last summer.

The Bouna Ndiaye client was apparently set to work out for the Wizards and the Grizzlies last month before auditioning for the Celtics, although another report indicated that Washington had no plans to bring him in. The Heat wanted to have Beaubois work out for them shortly before camp, but he suffered a wrist injury that prevented that from happening. The Sixers had offseason interest, too.

Beaubois, a native of Guadeloupe, saw his role diminish with the Mavs last season, as his 12.2 minutes per game were the fewest of his career. His per-36-minute numbers in points, shot attempts and rebounds last year were also career lows.
