VEF Rīga has signed 28-year old and 2.17m center Bamba Fall.
Bamba Fall played previous three seasons for Estonian team Kalev/Cramo Tallinn. Last season he averaged 10 points, 4.9 rebounds and 1.6 blocks in 10 Eurocup games; 7.3 points, 4.5 rebounds and 0.8 blocks in 18 VTB United League games; 7.1 points, 4.7 rebounds and 1.3 blocks in 33 Estonian League games.
"We have signed player with a quality that fits our requirements and financial capability. Bamba Fall is an energetic, defensive minded center who plays with a lot of passion and rebounds the ball well. Bamba Fall is unusually mobile player for his size that allows him to defend pick and roll situations pretty good. Bamba's presence and ability to block the shots will also help our back-court players on defense. We count on him as our starting center," said Nikolajs Mazurs, head coach of VEF Rīga.
