Rodney Elliott Signs in Spain

Rodney Elliott (1994-98) has been signed to a deal for the rest of the season with Tenerife Rural in Spain's LEB 1, which is Spain's 2nd tier league (ACB is the 1st tier league). The team is based in the Canary Islands.

Here's a translation of what the above article in Spanish says (I cleaned up the Google Translation):
Rural Tenerife has reached an agreement with player Rodney Elliott for the rest of the season. Elliott is a North American wing/pivot, 30 years old (4-3-76), and 2.02m tall, who has played professionally in Spain twice before: Ricoh Manresa in ACB and Fuenlabrada in LEB 1 during the 2004-05 season. The player, who had been playing for the Sidney Kings in Australia, is expected to arrive on the island soon to report to coach Rafa Sanz.
