Mathias Lessort, who the Sixers drafted with the 50th overall pick of the 2017 NBA draft, has signed with Crvena Zvezda on a three-year deal, the club announced.

The three-year deal includes a reasonable NBA out after each season which benefits the Sixers and Zvezda, as the negotiations will be quick whenever they occur and the Sixers will get their player and Zvezda will get their money.

Lessort comes over from Nanterre where he averaged 10.05ppg, 6.88rpg, and 1.12bpg across all competitions.

Lessort is Zvezda’s seventh signing of the summer as they are now very close to completely rebuilding their roster after the summer exodus they underwent.
