After starting out his professional basketball career in the United States, former BYU star Yoeli Childs will be continuing it abroad.

On Saturday morning, MHP RIESEN Ludwigsburg in Germany announced that it has added the 6-foot-8, 225-pound Childs, who also starred at Bingham High.

After going undrafted in 2020 following his standout career at BYU, Childs signed with the Washington Wizards organization and played in the NBA G League with the Erie BayHawks.

Last month, he played for the Los Angeles Lakers’ entry in the NBA Summer League in Las Vegas, where he averaged exactly 7 points, 6.3 rebounds and 1.3 assists in 14.9 minutes per game over four contests.

Childs and his wife Megan, who played volleyball for the Utah Utes and UVU Wolverines, are expecting their first child in December.
