Besson, 21, was picked up by the Indiana Pacers in the recent 2022 NBA Draft but his rights were traded to the Milwaukee Bucks immediately. He played for Elan Chalon, Saint-Quentin BB, and the New Zealand Breakers.
With Saint-Quentin in the 2020-21 season, he led the French Second Division in scoring with 19.5 on average and was among the MVP candidates. He was named an All-Star, the Best Scorer, and the Best Youngster that year.
Baskonia is in search of a point guard, especially considering the tempting offer by Maccabi Tel Aviv to Wade Baldwin who seems to be closer to leaving the Spanish team.
