Former Cajun Shawn Long Signs With Melbourne United
Former Louisiana basketball star Shawn Long had a productive first year in the Australia/New Zealand based National Basketball League.
And, now he's headed to one of the best franchises in that league.
Long was considered to be one of the better "imports" in the league last year, playing for the New Zealand Breakers. Long averaged 18.3 points, 8.9 rebounds and 1.5 blocks per game.
He'll now join fellow import Melo Trimble on the Melbourne squad. Long was a second team all-NBL selection last season.
