Ed Cota will depart for Belgium today, according to a report by Telebasket. The former Tar Heel point guard has signed with Telindus Oostende (Oostende, Belgium) for the remainder of the season.
Cota, who started on three UNC Final Four squads, spent two weeks on the New York Knicks preseason roster this fall before being waived.
He played last season with the Gary Steelheads of the CBA, and then IBL, when the CBA folded temporarily. He averaged 14.2 points and 4.9 assists with the Steelheads.
