Former Michigan State center Derrick Nix has signed to play professionally in Slovenia this upcoming season, according to a tweet from his agent.
“Congratulations to client Derrick Nix for signing with Adriatic & Eurochallenge club Krka in Slovenia,” said Nix’s agent Daniel Moldovan in a tweet this morning.
Moldovan is also the agent for San Antonio Spurs rookie Aron Baynes who played in 20 total games in the NBA last season.
Nix had his best year at MSU as a senior, averaging 9.9 points per game and 6.6 rebounds per game. The 6-foot-9 center from Detroit also shot a career high 69 percent from the free throw line and was fourth on the team in assists with 1.6 per game.
