Former Tennessee basketball standout signs deal to play in Spain, per report
Jordan Bone has been playing overseas, and now, the former Tennessee guard is getting a new opportunity.
Bone has signed with Casademont Zaragoza of Liga ACB in Spain, according to Emiliano Carchia of Sportando. Bone was previously playing in Turkey.
A Nashville native, Bone played 3 seasons at Tennessee from 2016-19. His best year came as a junior in 2018-19, when he averaged 13.5 points and 5.8 assists in 37 games (all starts) for the Vols.
Bone then declared for the 2019 NBA Draft, in which he was selected by the New Orleans Pelicans with the No. 57 overall pick in the second round. However, he was later traded to the Detroit Pistons.
Bone played 24 games over 2 seasons in the NBA with the Pistons and the Orlando Magic. He spent the majority of his time in the NBA G League, but he still got a taste of what it was like to play at the top level.
Bone is still only 24, so he likely has plenty of years still ahead of him in his basketball career.
