Former OSU forward Le’Bryan Nash has signed with Toros Nuevo Laredo, a professional team based out of Mexico.

Nash, a former star at Oklahoma State, played the last two seasons with the Fukushima Firebonds in the Japan League. For the Firebonds, he earned BJ League All-Star MVP and a BJ League Best Five award. He also set a new league record with a 54-point outburst — the highest in the league’s 10-year existence.

Following his time in Japan, Nash had a brief stint as an affiliate player with the Rio Grande Valley Vipers of the NBA G League before he was waived in February earlier this year. Now in a new environment for Toros de Nuevo Laredo, all indications are that he’ll pick up where he left off in Japan.

“Le’Bryan Nash is going to put on a show. I wish we could play here in Laredo,” director of player personnel and assistant coach Roy Zuniga told LMTonline. “There’s a small window for players with the opportunity to get in the NBA and sometimes that window closes for players. We are looking forward to bringing him in this season.”

Nash averaged 14.6 points and 5.1 rebounds per game during his four-year stint in Stillwater.
