Olympiacos fortifies frontline with Rubit

Olympiacos Piraeus fortified its frontcourt on Monday with the signing of power forward Augustine Rubit to a two-year deal. Rubit (2.01 meters, 29 years old), who arrives from German club Brose Bamberg, returns to the EuroLeague after a one-year absence; he averaged 10.1 points and 4.7 rebounds over 30 EuroLeague games for Bamberg in the 2017-18 campaign. Last season he posted 14.5 points on 62.6% shooting and 5.1 rebounds for Bamberg in the German League and 13.3 points and 6.3 boards in the Basketball Champions League. Rubit began his pro career in Germany with Tubingen and spent two seasons with ratiopharm Ulm, in which he competed in the EuroCup, before joining Bamberg.
