Reserve forward Georgi Glouchkov of the Phoenix Suns has signed a contract to play with the Italian pro basketball team Mobilgiri next season.
Glouchkov, 26, was Phoenix's eighth-round draft pick in June 1985. He played in 49 games in the 1985-86 season and averaged 4.9 points and 3.3 rebounds per game.
But last month, Glouchkov made only 7 of 24 shots from the field during a six-session camp for rookies and free agents. The native of Varna, Bulgaria, weighed 240 pounds when he won a roster spot last season yet weighed 218 during the recent camp and appeared listless at times.
The Suns retain Glouchkov's NBA rights.
