Buffalo Bulls Alumnus Mitchell Watt Lands In Italy

Mitchell Watt is moving from Israel — where he played for Nes Ziona — to Italy where he will play in the top Italian league known as the Serie A Kia.

Nes Ziona was relegated after a three year run in the BSL ended. Nes Ziona finished their season last place with a 10-23 record following a 95-84 defeat to defending champion Hapoel Jerusalem.

Watt has moved on to Italy, where he will play with JuveCaserta.

Watt has proved himself by playing in three leagues last year. In addition to Nes Ziona, he also played for ALBA Berlin in the BBL and he played 18 games in Eurocup.

The 2013 Eurobasket.com All-Balkan League Import Player of the Year also played professionally in NBA summer leagues on three occasions and in the NBA D league with the Santa Cruz Warriors.

Watt completed his time at UB with more than a thousand career points. His senior season also saw him named the Mid American Conference Player of the Year. After the Bulls lost in the second round of the CIT tournament in April 2012, Watt went on to impress NBA scouts at the Portsmouth Invitational Tournament. There was real buzz that he might get drafted but that never panned out.

Serie A basketball kicks off October 2nd at home, in the PalaMaggiò arena, against Grissin Bon Reggio Emilia.
