Former Kansas guard Elijah Johnson has signed with Polish team KS Rosa Radom, a pro team in the Tauron Basket Liga.

Johnson, a 6-foot-4 guard, was previously expected to sign with Polish team Anwil. After finishing up his four-year career at Kansas last spring, Johnson now becomes the third member of KU’s latest senior class to move into the professional ranks.

Center Jeff Withey is in training camp with the New Orleans Pelicans — formerly the New Orleans Hornets — while former KU guard Travis Releford is playing with Okapi Aalstar in Aalst, Belgium. Former KU guard Ben McLemore, who entered the NBA Draft after his freshman season, is in training camp with the Sacramento Kings.
