NBA draftee Hugo Besson will play alongside super-prospect Victor Wembanyama in France

By Eurohoops team/

Huge Besson returns to France after signing with Metropolitans 92, where he will play next season alongside Victor Wembanyama and coach Vincent Collet.

The 58th pick of the NBA draft, whose rights belong to the Bucks, will have the chance to play on his home soil after a season in New Zealand and improve his game.

Per the press release: Selected in 58th position of the last NBA draft by the Milwaukee Bucks, the young guard (21 years old) comes out of a convincing season in Australia with the New Zealand Breakers with 14 points, 4 rebounds, and 2.3 assists on average in the 25 games played. Above all, Hugo has shown constant progress throughout the season.

His natural qualities as a shooter and scorer should allow him to express himself fully in the team basketball advocated by our coach Vincent Collet.

His association with Victor Wembanyama promises a lot for the next season of Betclic Elite during which the Metropolitans 92 will have a young and talented backbone team.
