NEW PLAYER - MICHAEL EFEVBERHA
CEZ Basketball Nymburk agreed to terminate the contract with his current guard Mike Taylor, who came to the team of Czech champion form Greece in the summer. "Mike is a good player, however, his performances were not stable therefore we decided to split our ways," said the head coach Ronen Ginzburg.
The post of shooting guard will be substituted by Michael Efevberha, 28 years old American who spent this season in the Russian Vladivostok and comes for try-out to our team. In previous years, he gained experience in France, Switzerland and the Dominican Republic.
"The player has the potential, but we need to see him directly with us and that’s why we agreed on try-out," said the coach Ginzburg about new potential player.
Mike was born in the U.S. city of Pomona, California (near Los Angeles). He has the Nigerian passport thanks to his father.
