Orion Outerbridge to play in Greece

One of the sleepers of this season's seniors.

Orion Outerbridge (2.06-PF) is going to be playing in Greece next season as he announced in his Twitter account. The Rhode Island senior also said that he worked on his conditioning and his shooting this summer hoping to attract the attention of NBA teams.

It seems a good choice to start his pro career in Greece as the league has a reputation for tough games and is often the stepping stone to more lucrative contracts, in some cases playing for Euroleague teams. It's a good guess as any where he will be playing as there are quite a few teams that are still recruiting there and with the new rule of 4 non-European players, the Greek teams are looking even deeper in the NCAA market.

Orion said that in the NBA he'd be playing SF/PF but in Europe he'll become a regular at the PF spot and with his physical and athletic attributes he can even occupy the C spot. He averaged 12.6 points 6.8 rebounds and 1.8 blocks in a total of 31 games in Rhode Island last season.
