 Baskonia completes roster with forward Penava
KIROLBET Baskonia Vitoria Gasteiz has competed its roster by signing young power forward Ajdin Penava to a four-year contract, the club announced on Sunday. Penava (2.06 meters, 21 years old) arrives from Marshall University in the United States, where he played the last three seasons. In the final one of those, he put up 15.6 points, 8.5 rebounds and 3.9 blocks per game, the latter of which led all university players last season. Penava participated in two editions of the Euroleague Basketball Adidas Next Generation Tournament between 2013 and 2015 while playing for U18 Spars Sarajevo in his native Bosnia and Herzegovina. Spars won two of the three games that Penava played in at the 2015 ANGT Finals in Madrid, including one in which his 10-rebound performance helped defeat U18 Unicaja Malaga.
