Edgar Sosa signs with Italian team

After receiving heaps of praise over the past couple of his weeks for his play with the Detroit Pistons' summer league team, Edgar Sosa signed a contract with Angelico Biella - one of the top teams in Italy - this morning.

Sosa may have as easy a transition to European basketball as possible, given the fact that former Cardinal greats Reece Gaines and Taquan Dean are also members of this team. Another added bonus is that Western Kentucky's A.J. Slaughter, who played with Sosa for Detroit this summer, also signed with the team this morning.

Sosa will report to Italy in early August and remain there until late May. Teams in Lega Basket Serie A, the most competitive league in Italy, play a schedule consisting of 30 regular-season games and an eight-team playoff.
