Andreas Seiferth joins FCBB

FC Bayern Basketball would like to welcome new addition Andreas Seiferth. The 26-year-old center has signed a one-year-contract for the 2015-16 season. Seiferth played for the Artland Dragons last year and has made 41 appearances for the German national team. 

"We thought about which player fits the role for a long time," said FCBB Chief Executive Marko Pesic after Seiferth signed. "I know Andreas for quite some time now and I am positive that he is our man. His style of play and his enthusiasm is just what we are looking for."

Andreas Seiferth just finished individual workouts in Berlin and said: "Going into the first practice in Munich I will give it my all. He describes his switch to Bayern as " a step forward and I am happy that I can play use this chance and play Euroleague ball here at Bayern." Seiferth thinks he will fit perfectly in the team. "I already know the coaching staff. Coach Pesic and assistant Mutapcic know what I bring to the table." 

One year ago Seiferth took part in the qualifying round of the EuroBasket 2015. He played his first International game in Summer 2012 under coach Svetislav Pesic. He already has already played in two major tournaments. His first appearance was back at the U20 EuroBasket in 2009 and his most recent was EuroBasket 2013 in Slovenia. 

Born in Berlin the center developed his game in the capital signing for TuS Lichterfelde at the tender age of 18. On a professional level he showed his skills at Alba Berlin and was crowned "ProB Youngster of the Year 2010/11". The lefty really showed what he was made of at TBB Trier where he strived under coach Henrik Rödl. During the 2013-14 season Seiferth worked his way up the totem pole averaged 11.8 points and 4.9 boards per game. 

After three years in Trier, Seiferth took his talents to Quakenbrück where things turned sour. Seiferth only averaged 7.3 points and 3.1 boards per game while having a FG% of 58 percent. He also played in the Eurocup averaged 6.2 points per game. 

Meanwhile, Vladimir Stimac will be leaving FCBB. The Serbian International who came from Malaga only played 16 minutes per game while averaging 8.7 points and 5.3 rebounder per game. "We would like to thank Vladimir for his hard work and we wish him all the best in the future," said Marko Pesic.
