Just a quick note for those interested...

Byron is playing for Finish Korisliga side Joensuun Kataja along with Canadian Daniel Mullins.

The two are doing plenty of damage and have helped Kataja qualify for the Champions League with a two game total point win over Swedish team Sondertalje.

MKS Dabrowa Gornicza inks Byron Wesley
Translated story from the team's web site (translate.google.com/translate?hl=en&sl=auto&tl=en&u=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.mksdabrowa.pl%2Fbyron-wesley-nowyml-zawodnikiem-mks-u%2F), with a photo I enjoyed:


Soon we had to wait to fill a gap in the composition of our team - we are pleased to inform you that just a few hours ago was able to contract new American peripheral - Byron Wesley.

As reported a few days ago Rocky Trice'a injury prevented him to continue playing this season. In view of the situation personnel training staff immediately began searching for a new player that could help our team circuit. The choice fell on the 23-year-old Byron Wesley, who present the game started in Finland.

For the team Kataja Basket played just 12 matches, with 6 of them in their domestic league matches, while another 6 in competitions for basketball Champions League. Wesley League Finland averaged 17.5 points and 6 rebounds in 28 minutes spent on the pitch, but in the Champions League, his average gains to 15 points and 7 rebounds per 32 minutes of the game.

A few days ago his team took the decision to terminate the contract due to organizational reasons, not related to the health or behavior of the player, but the standard will go into our club medical tests, which ultimately will decide whether his contract finally enters into force.

Our new player last season played in the competition D-League team in Sioux Falls Skyforce a year earlier appearances ended at the university Gonzaga, where he had the opportunity to play, among others, with Przemyslaw Karnowski and Gary Bell (now Rosa Radom).

Byron appears in Dąbrowa already next week, and if you manage to complete the formalities, the fans will be able to see it at a meeting with Polpharma Starogard Gdanski on Saturday, 10 December. Byron We wish you every success in the applause of our team!
