Kinu Rochford (198 cm, Fair Dickinson’13) will be looking to continue his form with Saint Chamond Basket Valle du Gier (France, ProB), after signing for the club. The American is coming off a blazing personal 2015/2016 season, which was spent with the Cheshire Phoenix in the British BBL. He was the best player for the Phoenix and helped push the club to the semifinals of the playoffs.
Over 32 games for Cheshire, Kinu Rochford produced dazzling double-double averages of 19.8 points and 10.1 rebounds per game, while also adding 3.0 assists and 1.1 blocks per contest. He was the second best scrorer in the league and the fourth best rebounder.
Rochford has previous experience in the French ProB, helping Cote d’Opale nearly win promotion to the ProA in 2015.
