AJ Edu to continue career in Japan with Nagasaki


AJ Edu will remain in Japan.

The 6-foot-10 Fil-Nigerian big man is set to sign with B.League Division I team Nagasaki Velca.

Basketnews was the first to report the development, which was confirmed to Tiebreaker Times by multiple sources closely monitoring the situation.

The Velca are willing to wait for Edu’s recovery from a torn meniscus, which led to his signing with them.

In his first year as a pro, Edu played for Toyama, the previous team of Dwight Ramos.

However, just 14 games into the season, the Gilas pool member suffered an injury. He was playing well during that time, averaging 13.1 points and 8.9 rebounds per contest.

The injury forced Edu out of the FIBA Olympic Qualifying Tournament as well.

He will join a Velca team that aims to remain in B1 for the second straight season.

Nagasaki, the previous team of Jordan Heading, finished its first season in B1 with a 27-33 record, good for 17th place.

Toyama, on the other hand, was relegated to B2 after a dismal 4-56 slate.
