Charles Shackleford has signed to play with Phonola Caserta of the Italian League and will be waived by the New Jersey Nets, according to Sal DiFazio, agent for the former North Carolina State player.

Shackleford was the focus of an NCAA investigation into the North Carolina State team that led to the resignation of Coach Jim Valvano, the program being placed on probation for two years and the repayment of $405,756 in NCAA tournament revenues during Shackleford's sophomore and junior years.

In February, Shackleford admitted accepting more than $60,000 from two men during his final two years at N.C. State.
