Alex Renfroe signs until 2017

FC Bayern Basketball would like to welcome Alex Renfroe to the team. The American Guard has signed a two-year contract until summer 2017. The 29-year-old playmaker originally signed a four month contract with Alba Berlin last season, before resigning in January 2015.

“We are very happy to welcome Alex to the FC Bayern family. The negotiations were excellent. Alex is a versatile athlete who fits very well with the players who are in the guard position. He is a player who fits very well in our concept,” said Bayern CEO Marko Pesic after signing the player on Tuesday.

Renfroe, who now heads home for holiday said: “I had an amazing time in Berlin, but now I am very happy that I am a part of the Bayern team. My goal next year is to bring the title back to Munich. That is my biggest goal. I also want to play at a very high level and reach goals with the team.”

Gregory Alexander Renfroe is well known in Germany. In February 2013 the 1.91 meter tall point guard played for Bamberg as the team from Franconia clinched the championship.

The seasons after that he played for Enel Brindisi in Italy, Blancos de Rueda Valladolid in Spain, our fierce rival Brose Bamberg Baskets before concluding his time with BK Jenissei Krasnojarsk in Russia and Laboral Kutxa Vitoria in Spain.
