Elston to play in Italy, newspaper reports

Former Indiana forward Derek Elston has signed a contract to play professionally in Malta, Italy, the Herald-Times in Bloomington confirmed.

Verdell Jones III, a teammate of Elston during his time in Bloomington and a close friend, tweeted around noon that the 6-foot-9 forward had become a part of the pro basketball ranks.

"Shoutout to my boy Derek Elston pursuing his dreams and signing his first pro contract today..going to malta, italy! Lucky dude," Jones tweeted.

Elston will be the fourth member of the 2012-13 Hoosiers to make it on a pro roster. He joins NBA lottery picks Victor Oladipo and Cody Zeller, as well as Jordan Hulls, who signed with a team in Poland.

Christian Watford, who is working to make an NBA roster during summer team camps, is also expected to go pro, be it in the U.S. or overseas.
