(Tulsa-AP) -- Former Tulsa University basketball player Shea
Seals is on his way to France in an effort to jumpstart his career.

Seals signed a one-year contract Wednesday to play for one of
the top two squads in that country.

Seals is the leading scorer in T-U basketball history. But he's
been trying to overcome a series of setbacks since being ignored in
the 1997 N-B-A draft.

Seals had a free agent contract with the Los Angeles Lakers and
was kept on the roster for a season. But he had to sit out last
season after injuring a knee and undergoing reconstructive surgery.

His agent said Seals had arranged to play with the New York
Knicks during 1999 summer league competition but pulled a quad
muscle before leaving.
