Bader has backup plan in place, agrees to deal with ASVEL out of France

Travis Bader is pursuing his dream to play in the NBA, but if things don’t work out this summer, he has his backup plan in place.
ASVEL, a LNB Pro A basketball team in France, announced this morning it has reached a deal with Bader.
Bader’s agent, Andrew Morrison, confirmed the agreement but indicated that Bader can opt out of the deal should he be offered a contract in the NBA.
Bader is currently playing in the Orlando Summer League with the Philadelphia 76ers and he will play for the Golden State Warriors in the Las Vegas Summer League later in the month.
ASVEL is partially owned by San Antonio Spurs point guard Tony Parker, who played for the team in 2011 during the NBA lockout. Parker holds the title of president for the team. The club has won 17 French Championships in its history, the last coming in 2009. The 17 titles is the most of any team in the league.
The LNBA Pro A league has featured a number of NBA talents over the years including Parker, Bruce Bowen, Boris Diaw and Udonis Haslem.
You can find out more on ASVEL at its team website.
