Former Gonzaga guard Nigel Williams-Goss announced on Monday that he will be playing basketball overseas with KK Partizan in Belgrade, Serbia. The team announced that he has agreed to a two-year contract.

The former Zag helped Gonzaga win 37 games and make the national championship game this past season. WIlliams-Goss' season was highlighted by a Associated Press Second Team All-American nomination, as well as winning the West Coast Conference Player of the Year Award.

Williams-Goss will become the third American player on the KK Partizan roster, joining former New Mexico State point guard Ian Baker and former VCU forward Jamie Skeen.
