There was a double announcement by Roanne via their official website. They announced the signing of french combo-guard Pape Philippe Amagou (1.85-PG/SG) and also the renewal of the contract of head coach Denys Choulet.
Amagou started his career in Le Mans and in his last season in France he played for Nancy. Last season he played in Greece for Kavala BC. The greek team wanted to retain him in the roster but they couldn't provide him with the money that he wanted. He averaged 8 points 1.8 rebounds and 2.1 assists in 26 games.
