Isaiah Cousins' professional career will take him to Israel this year.

Hapoel Jerusalem Basketball Club announced the addition of the former Oklahoma guard on Wednesday.

The City of Jerusalem-based franchise plays in the Israeli Premier League and FIBA Champions League.

Cousins' deal with the club marks his second overseas stint.

His first came with Cholet Basket (French League) in 2018. He's spent the remainder of his professional career with the NBA G-League's Reno Bighorns (2016-17) and Salt Lake City Stars (2017-18; 2018-19).

Cousins was a third-team All-Big 12 selection in 2016 and helped the Sooners reach a Final Four. The Sacramento Kings drafted the Mount Vernon, New York, native with the 59th overall pick in the 2016 NBA draft.
