Triple strike from Bayern with Foster, Ford and Benzing

In Bayern they're not sparing expenses!

Perhaps it was the wild card to the Eurocup that immediately showed Bayern that Uleb and FIBA want another commercial German team to make things a bit more exciting. The administration of Bayern went large with German star Jan Jagla and now they've followed up with the 3 great transfers that will bolster their ranks for the upcoming season. The transfers were announced via the official website of the team.

Sharrod Ford(2.06-PF), the permanent top rebounder of the Italian League and blocker extraordinaire will be adding his skills to the front line of Bayern bringing athleticism and power to the table. Ford played once again for Montegranaro last season averaging his usual double-double of 15.8 points and 10.4 rebounds in 30 games in the LegaA1. Ford is no stranger to Germany as he started his European career in Alba Berlin and that made him instantly noticable in Europe.

The other addition is prolific scorer Je'Kel Foster(1.91-PG/SG) who also played in Italy last season for Cremona. Foster is no stranger to Germany from his time in Oldenburg and Ludwigsburg. This past season he averaged 12.2 points 3.3 rebounds 2.1 assists and 2.1 steals in 29 games in the LegaA1.

Last but not least is German prospect Robin Benzing(2.08-SF) who played last season for Ulm averaging 15.1 points and 4.5 rebounds in 33 games in the Bundesliga.

All 3 players signed a 2 season deal with Bayern.
