Farewell to Flacca & JR

Bayern Basketball is loaning forward Diego Flaccadori to Italian EuroCup participant Aquila Basket Trento. The 25-year-old guard already played for the Serie A club before his move to Munich in the summer of 2019. Flaccadori's contract with the German Cup winner is still valid until summer 2023.
"The opportunity for Diego to be able to get consistent playing time again as a ball-handler in the EuroCup at such a high level as in Trento via loan seemed to make sense to all parties involved," said Bayern sporting director Daniele Baiesi, explaining the move. "This is a logical next step in his development."
Diego Flaccadori played a total of 47 BBL games for Bayern in the past two years and averaged 7.2 points for the German Cup winners last season. He made 22 appearances in the EuroLeague and two in the Cup (13.5 ppg).
Reynolds transfer completed
Also completed since the beginning of the week is the transfer of center Jalen Reynolds after a year in Munich to his previous club Maccabi Tel Aviv. With an average of 13.6 points and 5.8 rebounds for the FCBB, the 28-year-old American played a major role in a German team reaching the EuroLeague playoffs for the first time.
Bayern has also said goodbye to Wade Baldwin (to Baskonia Vítoria), Robin Amaize and David Krämer (Braunschweig).
Like them, FC Bayern Basketball wishes Jalen "JR" Reynolds all the best for the future and thanks him for his commitment while in the FCBB jersey.
