Juwann James signs in Switzerland
September 18, 2012 – Pro Partner Sports Management is pleased to announce that Juwann James has signed a one-year contract with the Lions de Geneve in Switzerland’s LNA league. James played last season for Denain in the French Pro B league where he averaged an impressive 14.8ppg, 6.1rpg, 3.2apg, 1.6spg, on 58% shooting from the floor.
The Ligue Nationale de Basketball A is the top flight of Swiss basketball. Coach Ivan Rudez, who joined the club after successful stints in Croatia, Slovakia, and Austria, will use the powerful inside presence of James as a primary scoring option for the Lions. After a promising third place finish in the league last season, the Lions are looking to capitalize on new talent acquisitions and make a strong run at the league championship in 2013.
“Juwann is going to be a tremendous asset to the Lions this season” said Pro Partner’s Nick Morteo. “His natural ability to score inside the paint is going to complement the already strong roster that the Lions have built. We’re looking for big things from Juwann this year.”
