Former NBA center Lance Allred has agreed to contractual terms to play for the Kyoto Hannaryz this season, the bj-league team announced on Monday.
The Japan Times first reported on Aug. 5 that Allred would suit up for Kyoto, under new coach Honoo Hamaguchi, this season.
The 211-cm Allred played sparingly for the Cleveland Cavaliers in 2007-08. He's also spent time in the NBA Development League, and suited up for teams in France, Italy and, most recently, New Zealand.
The 30-year-old Allred, who attended Weber State, a Big Sky Conference school, is the author of two basketball books.
