Former Illinois center Shaun Pruitt has just signed a deal to play for BK Prostejov of the Czech Republic, agent Mike Naiditch told HoopsHype.com.

"Shaun gained some momentum after leading the Orlando pre-draft in rebounding," Naiditch said. "He turned down some pretty attractive offers. When it was all said and done, Projestov provided Shaun with the most money, a great coach, Eurocup exposure and an opportunity for big minutes."

Pruitt played with the New Orleans Hornets at the Vegas Summer League, but did not receive an offer for the 2008-09 season.
