    Default Jordan Mathews signs with Cremona in Italy

    I love this guy and hope he has a great experience in Italy.

    The team is Vanoli Cremona, which plays in the LBA, the top league in italy.

    Team website

    Italian League

    Eurobasket page

    Eurobasket story:

    Vanoli Basket Cremona (Serie A) strengthened their roster with addition of 25-year old American shooting guard Jordan Mathews (191-93kg-94, college: Gonzaga, agency: Wasserman). He played most recently at Team FOG Naestved in Danish BasketLigaen. In 27 games he was second best scorer with impressive 19.5ppg and had 4.5rpg, 3.4apg and 1.6spg last season. Mathews helped them to make it to the semifinals. A very good season in his career as he was voted to Eurobasket.com All-Danish Ligaen 1st Team, All-Imports Team and League Player of the Week (2 times).

    He won NBA G League Southeast Division championship title in 2018.

    Mathews has played previously professionally in NBA (Atlanta Hawks and LA Clippers) and NBA G League (Erie Bay Hawks).

    He attended Gonzaga University until 2017 and it will be his third season in pro basketball.
    As noted in the Eurobasket story, Jordan previously played in Denmark for Team FOG Naestved, where he really set the country on fire, as I previously reported in this Old Dogs thread: "Jordan Mathews agreed to a deal with Team FOG Naestved in Denmark"

    Cremona is about an hour and a half south of Milan and 2 and a half hours east of Venice.

    Thanks ZN!

    Any thoughts on likelihood of Matthews playing alongside Clarke in Memphis in the next year or two?
