Fu’ was named to the D-League’s All-Defensive team last season after making an impact with the Sioux Falls Skyforce and then played a handful of games for Guaros de Lara of Venezuela after the D-League season.
Edwin has impressed out in Vegas, reaching double figures 4 of 5 times for the Pelicans including 19 points (8-12 fg) in 21 minutes during a quarterfinal win last night; the Pelicans take on the Suns at 8pm (NBA TV) in the semis tonight.
A team that used to play in Israel’s third tier in 2010-11, Ness Ziona finished eighth last season. Former Louisville guard Preston Knowles was a big part of the team last season.
Fuquan was welcomed to Israel on Facebook by former Seton Hall and current Hapoel Jerusalem guard Tom Maayan.
