View Full Version : Jeremy Pargo to Italian Serie A club Umana Reyer Venezia for rest of season..

04-26-2016, 10:43 PM
Here is a quick press release.


Looks like a pretty short term (for this year) as there is only one game left in the Serie A regular season.

They are tied in 5th with 3 other teams at 15/14 and up against 3rd ranked Scandone AV this weekend.

A win will have them in the playoffs so I think a fair amount if pressure will be on Jeremy to acclimatise quickly.

Jeremy's new team placed last in its Eurocup pool, the competition that Gran Canaria made as far as the semi-finals.

For Canadian basketball fans, Melvin Ejim is also on Jeremy's new team.

The signing of Jeremy has been a stroke of genius by the Umana Management.

It will definitely add to his CV at the end of the season if he is not resigned.
