Former Tiger Kim English to play overseas

Kim English is headed to Italy.

The former Missouri Tiger and Detroit Piston signed a deal with Italian powerhouse Montepaschi Siena on Tuesday.

The Pistons released English last month following a rookie season where the shooting guard averaged 2.9 points and 0.9 rebounds in 41 games played.

Montepaschi Siena has won the Italian League seven years in a row.

English’s contract with the team includes an NBA out until Aug. 22.

Early Tuesday evening, English sent out a message on his Twitter account saying simply, “Ciao!”

English averaged 14.5 points and 4.2 rebounds per game during his senior season at Missouri in 2011-12.
