Nelson, who was aware he would be loaned out for the first season, is currently in Israel with the Great Britain Senior Men’s team – he has not suited up in their first two preparation games as a minor injury precaution.
The 2017 Big West Conference Player of the Year averaged 16.9 points per game in his Senior year at UCI, despite having missed half of the season through injury.
The news was first reported by Gigantes earlier this week.
