Gabriel to Karsiyaka, Faye in for Rethymno?

High flyer out, versatile forward in?

Pinar Karsiyaka announced the signing of the Auburn high flyer Kenny Gabriel (2.03-SF/PF) via their twitter account.

Gabriel, who graduated from Auburn, had a great season in Greece averaging 12.8 points and 9.3 rebounds in 26 games in the Greek A1 league.

Karsiyaka paid Rethymno 70,000 euros for the transfer according to sources of the Hoop. Rethymno is going to be targetting another power forward who played in the A1 league last season and that is Mouhammad Faye (2.08-PF). Faye is not as athletic as Gabriel but he is a very effective player nonetheless averaging 13.5 points 7.6 rebounds and 1.1 assists in 22 games in the Greek A1 league. Rethymno will be targetting one more American player with any money that is left if Faye agrees to their offer.
