Climamio Bologna strengthened its frontcourt Tuesday with the signing of center Jerome Moiso. The deal is for the remainder of the current season. Climamio is Moiso's second Euroleague team this year after opening the season with Lottomatica Roma, where he scored 5 points overall in two Euroleague games, playing 16 minutes per night. In the Italian league, the former France national team player averaged 4.8 points and 7.6 rebounds in 5 games. Moiso is somewhat familiar with his new team, as he spent time practicing with Bologna after being released from Roma.
A native of Paris, who grew up in Guadalupe, Moiso was selected with the 11th overall pick by the Boston Celtics in the 2000 NBA Draft. He spent time with five different teams – Boston, Charlotte, Toronto, New Jersey and Cleveland – in five NBA seasons. Moiso started his career in France with INSEP, before traveling to America to play college basketball at UCLA from 1998 to 2000. Moiso will join the team after the Christmas break.
