Bayern sign Anton Gavel

The FC Bayern Basketball team is extremely happy about a considerable new signing: Anton Gavel, one of the most high-profile players in the Basketball Bundesliga just signed a two year contract with the reigning German Champions until 2016.

On Monday, Slovak-German underwent his physical examination from Club Doctor Hans-Wilhelm Müller-Wohlfahrt and Team Doctor Jochen Hahne. For four-and-a-half years before signing for Bayern, Gavel played for the Brose Baskets in Bamberg, in which the 29-year-old shooting guard was voted as the best defensive player of the BBL two years in a row (2012, 2013) and in 2013 was also voted the most valuable player of the Final-Series.

"Anton is a player, who, in the past five years has had an influence in the BBL like no other player. He has not only won individual prizes but has also won noteworthy team titles on a National level," said FCBB-Manager Marko Pesic after the negotiations were finalized. "With Anton, we are getting a player who not only possesses fantastic individual skill but also embodies the character of a winner. This is a very important building block for this program and its' continuous development. It is great that he has decided to play for us."
