Summer signings round-up: Group A teams

(BASKETBALL CHAMPIONS LEAGUE) – The participants of the inaugural Basketball Champions League have been busy adding new players to their roster this off-season. Below we give you a quick update on the summer signings that the six teams with a berth in Regular Season Group A have made so far.

The Greek side, who extended their collaboration with head coach Dimitris Priftis, have signed an all-new backcourt duo in Michael Jenkins and Will Cummings. Jenkins is a 30-year-old shooting guard who spent last season at Turk Telekom Ankara and averaged 13.6 points, four rebounds and 2.1 assists in the Turkish league. Cummings on the other hand is not yet a known quantity in Europe, as his international experience consists of playing the last four games of the Italian Serie A season with Dolomiti Trento, following an excellent year in the NBA D-League with the Rio Grande Valley Vipers. In the frontcourt, Aris secured the services of Greek international center Vassilis Kavvadas who arrives from Olympiacos Piraeus. The 2.05 center who stands out for his phenomenal upper-body strength spent last season on loan at Arcadikos, averaging 14.9 points on 70.8% two-point shooting and 6.4 rebounds in the Greek A1 Basket League.
