Mornar Bar inked Isaiah Whitehead to a contract up to the conclusion of the 2019-20 season, the Montenegrin club announced on Saturday.

The 24-year-old American guard holds European experience through the VTB United League. Previously played in 89 NBA matches with the Brooklyn Nets.

Whitehead was picked 42nd in the 2016 NBA draft out of Seton Hall. A couple of years later made the jump to Europe for Lokomotiv Kuban and tipped off his current campaign with Astana. He averaged 9.6 points, 3.4 rebounds and 2.8 assists per appearance through five VTB contests.

His new team has a couple of Basketball Champions League games left, before turning full focus to its ABA League run. Already out of contention in BCL, Mihailo Pavicevic’s squad is currently 9-7 in ABA, good enough for fifth place.
