Jenkins will continue in Bilbao Basket until the end of the season

He had a two-month contract and is a very important player in attack. Aminu ends his journey after the return of Balvin. Rigo, Serron and Hakanson are injured.


At least, good news, and hopeful. Jenkins will continue to score points from long distance in Bilbao. The American guard, signed in mid-December on a two-month temporary contract, has renewed his contract until the end of the season. Not so Aminu, since Balvin's recovery allows him to dispense with his services.

Since his arrival in Bilbao, Jenkins, a true American international, has averaged 11 points and two assists in 28 minutes in the seven games he has played in the Endesa League and 10 points and 3.7 assists in the Champions League, competition in the one that the 'men in black' were eliminated yesterday in Turkey. Jenkins (Hendersonville, Tennessee, 29 years 1.93) signed for Bilbao Basket on December 15 after playing with the United States senior team in the last FIBA windows.

This shooting guard already had experience in the ACB, in which he played in the 2017-18 season with San Pablo Burgos, and also in the NBA since he played six seasons in the New York Knicks, Dallas Mavericks, Phoenix Suns and Washington Wizards. Before playing for his national team, Jenkins' last professional experiences were with the Jiangsu Dragons of the Chinese CBA and Hapoel Eilat of the Israeli Super League. Now Mumbrú is trying to recover the injured, as the infirmary has dampened the team's hopes this year. Serron, Hakanson and Rigo are in combat and Bilbao Basket will play half the league on Saturday against Obradoiro in Santiago. The Belgian escort is the closest he is to returning.

On the other hand, the Bizkaian company Drone by Drone, based in Amorebieta, will support the 'men in black' until the end of this season. The general director, Predrag Savovic, highlighted the importance of adding local firms with international projection: “For us it is always a pleasure to work with companies in our historical territory that are committed to innovation and that see in sport an opportunity to continue their expansion ”. For his part, Ander García Barroso, technical director of the company, pointed out that they are joining “an exciting project in which we combine innovation, sports and entertainment” .
