The German national basketball player Niels Giffey moves to the Spanish first division club UCAM Murcia. This was announced by the club on Tuesday.
The 31-year-old Berliner had been playing for Euroleague club Zalgiris Kaunas since 2021. It was already clear in mid-June that he would leave the Lithuanian record champions. Giffey is expected to arrive in Murcia on Wednesday and may be available to coach Sito Alonso as early as next weekend, the report added.
The 2.00-metre tall winger celebrated his greatest successes in club basketball with Alba Berlin, where he played a total of 398 competitive games between 2014 and 2021, winning the championship and cup twice and wearing the captain’s armband. Last month, he won bronze with the German national team at the European Championship at home.
