Villeurbanne signed Rawle Marshall

Asvel Basket signed small forward Rawle Marshall to address the club's need for more scoring punch and athleticism.

The contract is through the end of the calendar year with a team option to extend it for the remainder of the season. Marshall (201, 27) arrives from Valencia Basket, where he averaged 7 points on 50% three-point shooting in 19 minutes over four games in the Spanish League this season.

Marshall returns to the Euroleague after averaging 13.1 points on 43.6% three-point shooting and 3.6 rebounds in eight games for Cibona last year. He was named the Week 6 MVP after a dominating performance against another French team, Le Mans.

Marshall began his European career with Hemofarm, for whom he averaged 17.3 points and 3.8 rebounds in the 2007-08 ULEB Cup, helping the club to the Last 16 round as well as the Adriatic League, Serbian Cup and Serbian League finals. Marshall also played for Indiana and Dallas in the NBA after a college career at Oakland University.
