Lithuanian team Zalgiris Kaunas announced on Friday that they had signed former Clemson guard K.C Rivers to a one-year contract.

Per the release:

The versatile American, who stands at 196 cm tall and can slot into three positions, has played in some of Europe’s top clubs throughout his career. Rivers started playing professional basketball in Italian and French teams and moved on to Russia after several successful seasons. He then represented Lokomotiv Krasnodar and made his EuroLeague debut in the EuroLeague.

The longevity of his career has been outstanding, as this is reportedly the 15th international team that he will play for in his professional career.

The 32-year old played spent last season in Crvena Zvezda Belgrade. He played in Spain this summer for Real Betis Sevilla, where he averaged 10.1 points, 2.4 rebounds, and 2.2 assists per game.

During his time at Clemson (2005-2009), he averaged 14.2 points and six rebounds per game.
