AS Monaco Basketball makes a big hit with the signature of American playmaker Norris Cole (1.88m, 31 years old).
Born on October 13, 1988, in Dayton, Ohio, Norris Cole has one of the highest scores ever seen in the French league.
With Miami Heat, he won the NBA title twice (2012, 2013) and played in the final in 2014.
Norris Cole, who graduated from Cleveland State University in 2011, dragged into 28th place, played 7 seasons and 428 games in the NBA, playing in the playoffs six times, and averaging 22.3 minutes of play (7 pts, 2.7 assists).
In 2017, Norris Cole crossed the Atlantic, discovering the Euroleague with Maccabi Tel Aviv (12.6 pts, 3.8 passes).
Last season, after a season start in Italy at Avellino (16.3 pts), Norris Cole was one of the most prominent players in the Euroleague for Buducnost (16.6 points, 4.6 assists in 15 games).
A strong shooter, passer, fast and athletic in attacking the circle, Norris Cole, without a club since the beginning of the season, has kept fit in the USA.
He will discover his new team-mates on Monday and could already be on the game sheet on Wednesday for the arrival of the Greeks from Patras in EuroCup (8pm).
