Former Michigan point guard Mike Smith has landed a professional basketball contract overseas.

It was announced that Smith has agreed to sign with Astoria, who plays in the Poland basketball league. Astoria won the league title back in 2018.

The former starting point guard came to Michigan for the 2020-2021 season after playing four years for Columbia in the Ivy League.

In his one year stint with the Wolverines, Smith averaged nine points, five assists, and he shot 41% from 3. He also holds the Big Ten tournament single-game assist record with 15 assists.

Smith went undrafted in the 2021 NBA draft, but he played in the G-League with Sioux Falls Skyforce after being selected in the second round of the G-League draft. The 5-foot-11 point guard averages nine points and four assists in 42 games in his one year of G-League play.
