ANDl Baxi Manresa has announced the arrival of French guard Sylvain Francisco for the next few weeks. The club has not specified if the player will belong to the first team during the season and has communicated that, for now, he will reinforce the Catalan team during the preseason after the departure of point guard Vasilije Pusica, who did not complete the medical examination due to problems in the knee.
The Manresa team is made with the services of a 23-year-old and 1.85-centimeter-tall young guard who has played in the Chorale Roanne of the French First Division in the last season. His performance in the French team has been outstanding with 14.7 points per game, 2.9 rebounds and 1.9 steals on average in the 32 games played. His team finished in 16th position with 11 wins and 23 losses.
The arrival of the Frenchman comes after the hasty departure of Vasilije Pusica, who did not complete a single training session in Manresa after failing the medical examination. The club was looking for a player with different characteristics to the main point guard, Dani Pérez, a player more director of the game. Thus, and although Francisco does not have a guaranteed contract for the entire season, the Frenchman can contribute those points that are so necessary for the Manresa team.
