Semi Ojeleye inks deal with Italian club Virtus Bologna

Free agent forward Semi Ojeleye will leave the NBA to go to Italy. 

As announced by Italian club Virtus Bologna, Ojeleye has reached a two-year deal with them. 

Ojeleye was drafted by the Boston Celtics in the 2017 Draft as a second rounder. Following four seasons of stay, he inked a contract with the Milwaukee Bucks last year and was seen as a P.J. Tucker replacement. 

Despite being a solid defender, Ojeleye’s time with the Bucks didn’t materialize to success because of injuries and offensive inconsistencies. He was dealt to the L.A. Clippers as a part of a multi-team trade but was eventually waived off on the next few weeks. 

Ojeleye will join a robust Virtus team that also features former NBA cagers like Marco Belinelli, Nico Mannion, and Milos Teodosic.
