Luke played for BAXI Manresa last season and averaged 8.92 PPG across all competitions. BAXI Manresa reached the Basketball Champions League Final and just missed out on silverware to Lenovo Tenerife.
Maye is the first signing of the season for Granada and has an option for an extra year in his contract.
The 25-year-old will be playing against a familiar face again this season as Marcus Paige signed for Monbus Obradoiro in the Liga ACB last week. Marcus and Luke last faced each other in the Euro Cup in 2020/21, and they both shared the wins over their two match-ups.
The Liga ACB is widely considered the second-best basketball league after the NBA and with the likes of Barcelona and Real Madrid, Maye will come up against great challenges this season.
Covirán Granada won the Regular Season of the Liga LEB Oro, the second-tier of Spanish basketball, awarding the southern Spanish side automatic promotion to the Liga ACB.
The 2017 NCAA Champion is entering his third season overseas after a season in Trento in Italy and last season for the Catalan side, BAXI Manresa.
