The list of departures includes former captain Pavel Pumprla, big man Zach Hankins and Jaromír Bohacík, whose rights for the Czech league will remain with Nymburk but the club transferred him to fellow BCL participants SIG Strasbourg as the swingman wanted to try playing abroad at this stage of his career.

The latest addition to the 2020-21 Nymburk roster is center Stephen Zimmerman, who spent last season at Telekom Baskets Bonn. The 24-year-old American big man averaged 7 points and 5.3 rebounds per game in the German league, while in the BCL he averaged 8 points and 4.4 boards per contest.

Nymburk previously signed forward-center Carlton Bragg, who is to start his pro career at the Czech team after graduating from New Mexico. In his last season in the NCAA, Bragg featured in 15 games for the Lobos and averaged a double-double of 12.6 points and 10.3  rebounds.

Earlier, Nymburk had penned a more experienced forward in Omar Prewitt, who has a considerable track record in the BCL, with Aris Thessaloniki and Teksut Bandirma.

The American forward who turns 26 in September spent the 2019-20 season at Bandirma and averaged 12.6 points, 4.5 rebounds and 2 assists in the Turkish league, while in the BCL he averaged 13 points, 2.8 rebounds and 1.1 assists per game.


The Czech club have offered Jerrick Harding the first professional contract of his career after the 22-year-old point guard shined in the NCAA during his four years at Weber State. In his senior year, Harding averaged 22.2 points, 2.2 assists and 2.9 rebounds per game.

Nymburk have also signed point guard Luka Rupnik, who played for Telenet Giants Antwerp in the 2019-20 season. The 27-year-old Slovenian averaged 11.1 points and 3.6 assists per game in the BCL Regular Season for the Belgian team.

 
The Czech champions also brought in 19-year-old power forward Lubos Kovar from domestic rivals Svitavy. Kovar, who previously played for Nymburk's youth team, has served on both the U18 and U20 Czech national teams and is coming off an excellent NBL league season with Svitavy.
