UNCs Rashad McCants Signs In Lebanon

Former North Carolina star Rashad McCants has signed with Club Sportif Antonins in Lebanon’s Pepsi LBL league.

 

The 6-4 guard comes from Ice Cube’s new professional 3-on-3 basketball league, where he poured in 22 points to lead Trilogy past the 3-Headed Monsters 51-46 to capture this summer’s BIG3 championship.

 

McCants scored the last five points to seal the win and an undefeated season for Trilogy (10-0), and was named BIG3 Championship MVP.

 

The 33-year-old McCants, whose didn’t become the big NBA star that he had dreamed of, was happy for the chance to compete in Ice Cube’s BIG3.

 

“It’s just shutting the book on a career that never really reached full potential,” McCants told USA Today. “The years of a potential prime are vanished without a trace because of a few upper-level executives that decided to make my life a living hell. Ice Cube brought me in with a chance to reinvent myself.”

 

A college star at UNC, McCants was the team’s second leading scorer as a junior in 2004-05, averaging 16 points and 2.7 assists to lead the Tar Heels to a 33-4 record and the NCAA National Championship.

 

The 14th overall pick by Minnesota in the 2005 Draft, McCants averaged 10 points and 2 rebounds in three NBA seasons with the Wolves.

 

A prep star at Erwin High School (NH), McCants averaged 25 points and 7 rebounds as a senior, leading the school to the 2002 state championship.

 

He was also named the New Hampshire player of the year and state Gatorade Player of the Year that season.

 

In Lebanon, McCants will be joining a Club Sportif Antonins squad that features Kevin Burwell (Miss. Valley St.), who leads the team in assists and is second in scoring this season, averaging 13.4 points and 6 dimes.
