Alade Aminu (207 cm, PF) is part of a semi-overhaul in Bilbao. The Spanish club just added John Jenkins on the guard spot yesterday and announced today that they had signed the 33-year old Nigerian international power forward Aminu.
Alade Aminu joins a team in need of inside presence. Bilbao currently takes the 17th spot in the ACB standings with a 2-11 record. After a hugely successful 19/20 campaign under then-new head coach Alex Mumbru, RETAbet is mightily struggling to get this season on the rails.
Alade Aminu is expected to help do so. Last season the big man played in Poland, where he averaged 14.3 ppg and 7.2 rebounds in 18 EBL games.
Aminu played his college basketball at Georgia Tech, where he recorded 11.8 ppg and 8 rebounds per contest his senior year.
