The 24-year-old made his own GB debut last year during the pre-qualifiers for EuroBasket 2021 (now to be played in 2022) with a best of seven points coming against Luxembourg, in a fourth straight win.
Prior to a four-year stint at D1 school Bradley, Lautier-Ogunleye also played a season in the BBL with Bristol Flyers during their debut campaign.
Poitiers recorded just two wins in 23 league games in Pro-B last season and they maintained their second tier status after the campaign was cancelled due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Akwasi Yeboah will also be playing in Pro-B next season after joining Saint Quentin – Pro Brits tracker, HERE.
