Basketball: first reinforcement for Milan, Davies – Basket arrives from Barcelona

(ANSA) – MILAN, JUN 24 – Brandon Davies is the first official reinforcement of the Italian champions. The former Barcelona center has signed a two-year contract with Olimpia Milano and will replace Kaleb Tarczewski in Ettore Messina’s tactical chessboard. “I am happy to be here – his first words at the AX Milano website – and excited to be part of the Italian Champion team. I can’t wait to start working and doing it together with this group.” “Brandon – welcome from general manager Christos Stavropoulos – is a modern player, athletic, shooter and with a lot of Euroleague experience at the highest level. We believe he can significantly improve our long section.” Davies, born in Philadelphia on July 25, 1991 and having 78 career games in the NBA, is in his second experience in the Italian championship: in 2015/16 he played in Varese, close to success in the Fiba Europe Cup, lost in the final against Frankfurt.

More announcements from Milan are expected in the coming days: Kevin Pangos, Naz Mitrou-Long, Billy Baron and Stefano Tonut are on the way, as well as the renewal of Gigi Datome being defined. (HANDLE).
