French guard Rodrigue Beaubois has signed a two-year deal with Anadolu Efes, the club announced. 

Beaubois joins the Istanbul-based side from Liga Endesa finalists Baskonia, where he averaged 12.4 points on 48.5 percent shooting from the field plus 2.4 rebounds and 1.8 assists per game in EuroLeague, 

The 30-year-old averaged 12.1 points, 2.9 rebounds and 2.4 assists in the Liga Endesa as Baskonia lost 3-1 in the finals against Real Madrid.

Before his jaunt into Europe, Beaubois won the NBA title with the Dallas Mavericks in which he had a four-year stint from 2009 to 2013.

It’s a major new signing for Anadolu Efes, who are looking to vastly improve their fortunes following a disappointing EuroLeague campaign which saw them finish bottom and fail to make an impact in the Turkish League playoffs.
