Brandon Davies Signs To Play In France

Former Sixers and Nets power forward Brandon Davies has signed with Elan Chalon of France, the team announced (translation via Sportando’s Emiliano Carchia). Brooklyn waived Davies last week rather than guarantee his minimum salary for the rest of the season. It’s unclear what the 23-year-old will earn with his new club.

The Bill Duffy client played a prominent role with the Sixers this season before last month’s Andrei Kirilenko trade sent him to Brooklyn. Davies averaged 6.3 points and 3.7 rebounds in 19.0 minutes per game and made six starts for Philadelphia this year, an increase from the 11.3 MPG he saw last year as a rookie. Brooklyn used him sparingly, giving him just 6.3 MPG over seven appearances. He was the only one of the four players on the Nets without fully guaranteed salary not to stick with the team through last week’s leaguewide guarantee date.

Davies went undrafted in 2013 and has twice been waived by NBA teams, but this is the first time he’ll suit up for a pro club outside the league. The Clippers released him toward the end of the preseason in 2013, but the Sixers snapped him up a few days later.
