Mensa-Bonsu announced by Badalona
Pops Mensa-Bonsu(2.06-PF), the hero of Granada was announced today by Badalona. The player who helped Granada stay in the ACB by leading them(22pts 9reb 3bl) to victory against the later champions of Spain, signed his new contract with Badalona and will be helping them in the Euroleague next season. Bonsu will have to fill in the shoes of Jerome Moiso(2.11-C) who moved to Russia and Khimky.
Bonsu took part in the Vegas Summer League where he impressed with 14.3 points 5.3 rebounds and 1.5 blocks in 4 games but didn't manage to get a contract next season with the Mavericks. Bonsu has got immense athletic skills that allow him to play successfully "over the hoop" giving him the ability to block shots and collect lots of rebounds. Not so much of a shooter though. He also has a british passport and he is part of the British National Team.
Last season Bonsu played for Benetton and he averaged 9.2 points 8.3 rebounds and 1.1 blocks in 31 games.
