DeVaughn Washington signs in Uruguay
February 14, 2012 – Pro Partner Sports Management’s DeVaughn Washington has signed with Bohemios in the Liga Uruguaya (LUB). Washington joins the club after a stint with Gelisim Koleji in Turkey’s TBL2 where he averaged 11.2ppg, 4.7rpg, and 1.3bpg. The high-flying forward landed in Montevideo this week and looks to bolster the third-place club as they enter the playoffs.
As a senior at Ohio University, DeVaughn averaged 13.4ppg, 5.6rpg, 1.1spg, and shot 52.2% from the field. He was an All-MAC selection and participated in pre-draft NBA workouts with the Boston Celtics and Washington Wizards in June.
“The style of play in the South American markets is up-tempo and DeVaughn’s athleticism should be a huge asset” said Pro Partner’s Jim Buckley. “He’s been a target of a number of Uruguayan clubs since he graduated from school. Bohemios presented the right opportunity at the right time.”
