Dajuan Wagner Signs with Polish Team
Former Camden High School basketball star Dajuan Wagner, who has battled illness and injury in his NBA career, has signed a one-year deal with a Polish team, Prokom Trefl Sopot, according to eurobasket.com.
The team, which was founded in 1995 and competes in the Euroleague, is based in Sopot, Poland and won the Polish League Championship in 2004 through 2007, and includes former NBA player Travis Best.
Wagner, a former first-round draft pick by the Cleveland Cavaliers, was most recently a member of the Golden State Warriors.
But, the Warriors bought out his contract — which was a partially guaranteed $1.6 million deal — last preseason after Wagner wasn’t able to keep up with the daily rigors. The 24-year-old Wagner battled severe colitis as well as a knee injury during his time with the Cavs, and finally had his colon removed in October of 2005 at Mt. Sinai Medical Center in New York.
