Cholet announced Samuel Mejia
Today Cholet Basket announced signing of 1-year deal with small forward Samuel Mejia (198-G-83, college: De Paul). The 26-year old player from Dominican Republic spent last season with Greek AEL 1964 Larisa.
He appeared 19 times in A1 averaging 14.1 ppg, 3.2 rpg and 1.8 apg. That was his second European season so far. 2007/08 Samuel Mejia started with NBDL team Fort Wayne Mad Ants, but in February moved to Pierrel Capo d'Orlando. In Serie A he played 16 games collecting 11.3 ppg, 5.1 rpg, 1.9a pg and 2.1 spg. At 2007 NBA Draft he was selected by the Detroit Pistons as 57th overall pick, but never officially appeared in NBA.
Samuel Mejia is a product of De Paul University, where he graduated in 2007. In his senior season Mejia registered 14.1 ppg and 5.9 rpg. Interesting is that his junior year with De Paul was maybe his best one. That season he averaged 15.1 ppg, 4 rpg and 2.5 apg. Meija led his school NIT Elite Eight 2007 and was named 'All-Big East 2nd Team'.
