Former Buffs Guard Levi Knutson Heads To Spain

Had there been no NBA Lockout, former Colorado guard Levi Knutson may have joined an NBA team as an undrafted free agent, played in the Las Vegas Summer League or have signed later on an entered as training camp depth. But Knutson needed to look elsewhere for a chance to step on the hardwood.

On Tuesday, Colorado Buffaloes assistant coach Jean Prioleau tweeted that he just found out Knutson was heading to Spain to play basketball. Knutson apparently signed a few days ago with CAI Zaragoza in Spain. Zaragoza is in the Asociación de Clubs de Baloncesto (Liga ACB), the top Spanish league and one of the best in all of Europe.

However, his three-year contract will have him play in Mallorca for the first year so he can become acclimated to European basketball and the move overseas.

Knutson put up 11.7 points and 2.9 rebounds per game over 39 contests as a senior during the 2010-11 season. His departure, along with Alec Burks and Cory Higgins will give the Buffs a tough challenge to work through this coming season.
