Euroleague reinforcement for Lenovo Tenerife: Charles Jenkins

The Canarian team announces the arrival of the American escort (32 years and 1.90 m.). You will not be able to play the final phase of the Champions League, only in ACB.

The Lenovo Tenerife has incorporated into its project the American escort Charles Jenkins, 32 years old and 1.90 tall, who comes from the Greek Olympiakos, the club reported this Saturday.

The new guard of the Tenerife team will only be able to play in the ACB, since the registration period for the FIBA Champions League is closed, in which Lenovo Tenerife will be in the final phase.

The injuries of Spencer Butterfield and Sasu Salin, although he is already prepared to return to the court, have caused the club to search the market for a player in that guard position and thus not force so many minutes on the court, together, to Bruno Fitipaldo and Marcelinho Huertas.

Jenkins' CV

Jenkins, who has a Serbian passport, has played more than 200 Euroleague-Eurocup matches in Europe. He was chosen by Golden State in the 42nd position of the 2011 draft and played 110 games between the Golden State and the Sixers.

He began his stay in Europe at the Italian Teramo in 2011 and then, after two years in the NBA, defending the colors of the Red Star of Belgrade, in three stages (2013-2015, 2016-2017 and 2019-2020); Olimpia Milan (2015-16), Russian BC Khimki (2017-2019) and Greek Olympiakos (2020-2021) were his other European teams.

Leader in recoveries of the Euroleague 2016-2017, he has been League and Cup champion in Serbia and Italy, passing through Red Star and Milan, in addition to having won the Adriatic League with those of Belgrade.
