The young player, who has spent the entire preseason under the command of Sarunas Jasikevicius with the Barça first team and has played a game in the ACB league, arrives to reinforce the interior game of the Lleida team by virtue of the collaboration agreement signed between the two entities this past summer.

Badji, one of the strongest promises in African basketball, stands out for his size (232 centimeters) and despite his youth (19 years ago on the 13th of this month) he already accumulates two seasons of experience in the LEB Plata, always in the ranks of FC Barcelona B. in the last one, he managed to add averages of 6.2 points, 5.7 rebounds and 1.7 blocks per game.

Badji will join the ICG Fuerza Lleida training sessions this Tuesday and it is expected that he will be able to make his debut on Sunday, at the team’s debut in the league on the Movistar Estudiantes court.
