Devon Hardin to replace Patterson in Egaleo BC
DeVon Hardin(2.11-C) was signed by Egaleo BC to replace Andre Patterson(2.06-C) that didn't manage to help them very much. DeVon Hardin started the season in Mersin but was later on released due to a prolonged injury that he has been carrying with him throughout the summer. The injury is a stress fracture on his right foot that will keep him at least a month out of action.
DeVon Hardin didn't take part in the Vegas Summer League due to this injury and he last played in the Orlando Pre-Draft Camp. He was drafted at number 50 in the 2nd round by the late former Seattle Supersonics but didn't manage to secure a contract in the NBA. His foot injury will keep him at least a month out of action and he will most probably find a contract later on in Europe but with a seriously reduced salary. He averaged last season 9.3 points 7.4 rebounds and 1.2 blocks in 30 games for the California Golden Bears in the NCAA.
