Former Ohio State basketball star David Lighty confirmed over the weekend that he has signed a two-year contract with Cantu which is located in northern Italy.

Eventhough there is no escape clause in the contract, Lighty says that he can leave to play in the NBA after one season or for another European team if a buyout is paid.

The undrafted Lighty, said this contract gave him security because with the NBA in a lockout-mode, no team could sign him at this time or make him any contractual offers.

Former Ohio State basketball star David Lighty has confirmed that he will be signing a contract with an Italian team Cantu, which will play in Europe’s top classification, the Euroleague, in 2011-2012.

Lighty, who went undrafted in the recent NBA draft, participated in minicamps with the Atlanta Hawks and Phoenix Suns recently before NBA owners locked out the players after the league’s collective bargaining agreement expired.

Lighty told the media that with the six-figure guaranteed contract Cantu is offering him and his agent, he has to accept it. NBA teams can’t sight or make any offers to free agents until the lockout ends, also played a part in his decision.

Reserve guard Daequan Cook got the news he had been hoping.

The former Ohio State star received a qualifying offer from the Oklahoma City Thunder, making him a restricted free agent during this offseason.

The Thunder will now have the chance to match any contract offers Cook receives from other teams.

The Dayton, Ohio native joined the Thunder after being traded last year from the Miami Heat. He was able to get into the Thunder’s rotation in the middle of the season, scoring 6.4 points and shooting 45 percent from three-point range.

Cook, along with Michael Conley, Greg Oden and David Lighty led the Ohio State basketball team to the 2007 NCAA championship game against Florida in his only season with the Buckeyes.
