Myles Hesson is finally set to suit up for Nanterre in France’s top-flight having re-signed for the club after his initial contract was cancelled.
“It’s great to be back playing regularly and I’m delighted to join Nanterre”, reflected Myles.
“Nanterre have a strong set-up and compete at the highest level in the European competitions so it’s a great opportunity for me.
“I enjoy playing in the Pro-A and can’t wait to get going with my new team.”
Hesson averaged 12.4 points and 5.1 rebounds per game last season for Gravelines.

The 27-year-old’s initial switch was confirmed in the summer, but due to his injury situation, Nanterre opted for a replacement prior to the start of the season.
Hesson made his competitive return from injury last month in GB’s World Cup Qualifiers against Greece and Estonia having missed EuroBasket 2017 due to the fractured tibia he sustained back in February.
Nanterre currently have a 7-5 record in Pro-A with Hesson set to make his debut in the Basketball Champions League against Italian side Sidigas Avellino on Wednesday.
