The 'four' from Extremadura Alejandro Galán (Calamonte, 2.07, 21 years old) has become the fourth reinforcement of RETAbet Bilbao Basket for next season. He comes from LEB Oro's HLA Alicante, a team in which he has averaged 8 points, 3.7 rebounds and a PIR of 9.4 during the regular season, numbers that improved in the promotion Playoff to 9.2 points, 3.7 rebounds and a PIR of 10.2 in 18 minutes of play. The interior signs for a season.

At just 19 years old, the Badajoz was named MVP of the LEB Silver Cup that he won with the Alicante team. The player, a regular in the lower categories of the Spanish National Team, won the silver medal in the European Under-20 tournament in Israel.

The sports director, Rafa Pueyo, gave an assessment of the signing: "Alejandro Galán is going to bring us the ambition and enthusiasm of a young player who makes his debut in the Endesa League. He is a complete player, who is smart in the game without the ball, he finishes well near the basket and penetrates playing 1 × 1 facing the basket. He is also a good rebounder both in defense and attack. We hope that the energy with which he plays and trains will help us to be better. ”

Now there are only two fives and a base left to close the team. Bilbao Basket closes fringes to sign Jeff Withey, a center with an experience of seasons in the NBA and with a marked defensive spirit.
