Kansas freshman Billy Preston has signed with BC Igokea, a European club located in Bosnia and Herzegovina. The club announced the signing, as did the Adriatic Basketball Association. Nicole Player, Preston's mother, confirmed the signing to ESPN. Preston did not sign with an agent. "We are thrilled to welcome Billy Preston to our Club," BC Igokea general manager Igor Dodik said in a release. "We watched him when he was in High School at Oak Hill Academy and in the McDonald's All Star game. We are honored to have such a tremendous talent in our organization. We were watching his situation closely and reached out to his family to show interest and ultimately reached an agreement with the family attorney in California on a contract for the rest of the season. We know Billy is an NBA prospect so we will do our best to continue his development to help him excel for our club and fulfill his goal which is to be an NBA star in the near future. "BC Igokea will find his place in NBA draft 2018!" Neither Preston nor Kansas has confirmed the signing yet.
