Former Western Washington University and Bellingham Slam forward Michael Duty has crossed the globe for his latest opportunity to play professional basketball, signing with a team in Spain.

The 6-foot-6 Seattle native and former O'Dea High School standout has signed with the Obila Basketball Club located in the city of Avila in central Spain. The team participates as a member of the Spanish Basketball League's Silver division.

Duty heads to Spain after recently completing his first professional season overseas in Australia, where he suited up for the Mackay Meteors of the Queensland Basketball League. In 13 games this year with the Meteors, Duty averaged 13.6 points and 5.8 rebounds per game, and scored at least 20 points three times.
