Two new players on board! Jackson and Drame signs with Zielona GóraEnea Zastal BC improved their roster with signing two new players - Paul Jackson and Ousmane Drame.
Paul Jackson is still during his rookie season in Europe. Until now he has played in KK Rabotnicki, where he averaged 23,8 points and 6,4 assists in every game. Jackson was best scorer in Macedonian League.
- Paul Jackson is a rookie, because after graduation he decided not to play in Europe because of the virus spreading all over the world. This season he has played in Macedonia, and he deserved a chance to play on a higher level. He has size, he is athletic, he can score from under the basket and he has good range - said coach Oliver Vidin.
Second new player is Ousmane Drame. Big man born in Guinea has 206 centimeters and is able to play both on power forward and center position. This season he didn't have the opportunity to play because of the surgery, that he went through during 2021 summer.
Drame spent last two seasons in France, where he plaeyer in Pau-Lacq-Orthez and Gravelines. Last season he averaged 7,9 point and 4,2 rebound every game.
- Drame is a player, who has more experience than Paul Jackson, last two years he played in France. Despite his height and position he is a player that shoots the ball very well, has good defensive skills and plays very good transition. He has no problem with playing both pick and roll and pick and pop. Because of his abilities he can play both center and power forward position. I am very happy, because I think he is the player that we've been missing since the beginning of the season - says Oliver Vidin.
