Former Huskers’ guard Terran Petteway is heading overseas.
After a full season in the NBA G League (formerly the D League) and several stints in the NBA Summer League, Petteway has reportedly agreed to a deal with JSF Nanterre, a French squad in the LNB Pro A.
The 6-foot-6 guard from Galveston, Texas, went undrafted in the 2015 NBA Draft, but after earning a spot on the Atlanta Hawks Summer League squad the ensuing summer, signed with Atlanta. After three preseason appearances, he was waived.
Petteway bounced around and eventually landed with the Fort Wayne Mad Ants, a G League affiliate of the Indiana Pacers, where he averaged 11.6 points in almost 27 minutes a night during the 2015-16 season. Petteway started in 23 of his 49 appearances but struggled from the field, shooting just 41 percent on the season.
On August 7, 2016, Petteway signed with an Italian team in the Serie A, where he averaged a team-high 14.6 points on 42 percent shooting from the floor and 35 percent from three for Flexx Pistoia.
Petteway also participated in the 2017 NBA Summer League as a member of the Boston Celtics.
In two seasons at Nebraska, Petteway was an All-Big Ten performer in back-to-back seasons. He also led the conference in scoring (18.1) during the 2013-14 season, his first with the Huskers after transferring from Texas Tech.
