Brock Motum Profile

Washington State power forward Brock Motum announced on his facebook page this morning that he's headed to Europe to begin his professional career.

"Whats up Basket City! Excited to be joining the powerful Virtus Bologna!!," he posted.

Virtus Bologna is in Italy's top division and has a strong history of success. The team has won 15 league titles and eight Italian Cups.

Motum, who led the Cougs and Pac-12 in scoring last season with 18.7 points per game, went undrafted in this year's NBA draft, but joined the Philadelphia 76ers for summer league action. His playing time was minimal, though.
