James Webb III Expected To Play In Germany

Former Nets forward James Webb III is expected to play in Germany for the 2018/19 season, according to Emiliano Carchia of Sportando, who hears from a source that Webb has agreed to terms with Telekom Baskets Bonn.

As Carchia details, Webb was previously expected to join Pallacanestro Cantu, having apparently reached an agreement with the Italian club earlier in August. However, that deal fell through, prompting the 25-year-old to shift his focus to Germany.

Webb, a former Boise State standout who went undrafted in 2016, spent the first year and a half of his professional career playing for the Delaware 87ers, the Sixers’ G League affiliate. He caught on with the Nets in January, signing a two-way contract with Brooklyn and appearing in 10 games for the NBA team in 2017/18. Webb also played 19 games for the Long Island Nets in the G League, averaging 14.3 PPG and 6.6 RPG with a .406/.374/.872 shooting line.

Webb is one of several two-way players who will head overseas for the 2018/19 campaign, as our Free Agent Tracker shows.
