Samardo Samuels (206 cm, Louisville’10) has been released by BC Partizan NiS Beograd (Serbia-KLS) this 2017. The 28-year-old Jamaican international basketball player signed with them at the beginning of the season. He was initially suspended by the team after he made a sexist comment and criticized his coach on social media. His kind of negative energy was not something the organization did not want in the team. He played three games for them in the ABA League where he averaged 10.7 ppg and 3.7 rpg. In two domestic Serbian League games, Samuels averaged 13.0 ppg and 9.0 rpg.
