SPARTANBURG, S.C. – The NCAA's all-time 3-point leader and former Wofford Terrier guard Fletcher Magee has signed a professional contract with Monbus Obradoiro in Spain.

Magee, who signed an NBA Summer League contract with Milwaukee, appeared in four games for the Bucks. The 6-foot-4 guard capitalized on his opportunities in Milwaukee's last game against Portland, scoring 12 points in 17 minutes of play, going 5-for-8 from the floor and 2-of-4 from 3-point range.  

During his time at Wofford, Magee scored 2,516 points while knocking down an NCAA record 509 3-pointers. As a senior, Magee averaged 20.3 points per game to help Wofford set program marks in wins (30) and wins in a regular season. The Orlando, Florida, native lifted Wofford to an Associated Press Top 25 ranking, a No. 7 seed in the NCAA Tournament and the program's first NCAA Tournament victory en route to AP All-America Honorable Mention, Lou Henson National Player of the Year, SoCon Athlete of the Year and SoCon Player of the Year honors.

Located in the northwest part of the country, Monbus Obradoiro competes in Liga ACB, which is the top league in Spain featuring teams such as FC Barcelona, Real Madrid and Valencia. Some notable former players who have competed for Monbus Obradoiro included Mike Muscala, who currently plays for the NBA's Oklahoma City Thunder, and Robbie Hummell who was drafted by the Minnesota Timberwolves.

Liga ACB has seen numerous players advance to the NBA including: Luka Dončić, Nikola Mirotić, Rudy Fernandez, Ricky Rubio, Marc Gasol, Luis Scola and Pau Gasol.

Magee becomes the second Terrier to ink a contract in Europe this summer, joining teammate Cameron Jackson who signed with Mitteldeutscher Basketball Club in Germany.
