Wizards’ Kevin Seraphin to play for Spanish team

Another Wizard has decided to play overseas this fall, with the unstable NBA labor situation forcing players to seek other options for employment. Big man Kevin Seraphin announced on Monday that he will play for Spanish Euroleague team, Caja Laboral Vitoria. Seraphin’s agent, Bouna Ndiaye, confirmed the decision.

Ndiaye said in July that Seraphin would likely play in Europe if the NBA lockout was protracted. Ndiaye had been in talks with a few teams in France, including Cholet, but decided to join a team that also competes in Spain’s ACB, which is considered the best league in Europe. The 6-foot-9 Seraphin, a native of French Guyana, appeared in nine games for France at Eurobasket and averaged 4.7 points and 1.9 rebounds.

Seraphin averaged 2.7 points and 2.7 rebounds in 57 games with the Wizards. He has an out-clause to join the Wizards when the lockout ends.
