Hoosiers Playing Basketball Professionally Overseas in 2018-19

(Updated:  We learned after publishing this story that Alexis Gassion is now playing in Switzerland.  We have made that update below.)

Earlier in the week we brought you the eight former IU stars now playing in the NBA.  (Update:  Troy Williams has since been released by New Orleans and we are awaiting word of his next landing spot.)

Several readers requested an update on the various former IU players now starring overseas or in the NBA G-League.
