EA7 Milano have signed NBA G-League journeyman Cory Jefferson as part of their new-look roster for next season.

Jefferson, who was a late second round pick in the 2014 NBA Draft, arrives in the fashion capital from Philippine Basketball Association side Alaska Aces, where he averaged 29.5 points per game to go along 14.0 rebounds and made 46.6 percent of his three-point attempts.

Before his jaunt to the basketball-mad country, Jefferson played 50 game for Brooklyn Nets as a rookie in the 2014-15 season, averaging 3.7 points and 2.8 rebounds per game.

The following campaign he appeared in eight games for the Phoenix Suns while spending most of the season for the G-League side Bakersfield Jam. There he averaged 17.3 points and 9.8 rebounds per game.

After a short spell with the Cleveland Cavaliers, Jefferson headed to G-League side Austin Spurs, an affiliate of San Antonio. There, he averaged 15.8 points per game.

The 26-year-old, Tacoma Washington native joins a Milano side desperate to improve on their disastrous campaign last season, where they finished rock bottom of the EuroLeague as well as being eliminated from the Italian league Playoffs at the semi-final stage.
