After a disappointing season and already having one of their starting players sidelined due to injury, Apoel Basketball Club (Cyprus) announced the signing of FOUR new American players. A long-time power in Cypriot basketball with 11 league championships, Apoel finished last season with an 11-9 record in Cyprus' Division A, qualifying for the semifinals of the Divison A playoffs. Here are the new players:
Harris is entering his third season of pro basketball after graduating from Campbellsville University in 2015. The big man has played for four teams over the course of his first two seasons, splitting last year between Final Spor Glenclik in the Turkish second division and SK Cherkasy in Ukraine. He averaged 11.1 points per game in 16 games last season.
Fleming played hoops at Ferris State, graduating in 2016. The guard spent his rookie season in Slovakia with BK Iskra Svit.
Moore will also be starting his third season as a pro. The Citadel product spent his first season in Bulgaria and his second season in Germany, where he averaged 11 points and 3.9 assists per game in the German second division.
Baker signed with the team in June, but was announced with the rest of the new American signings. The power forward/center will be the most experienced American player at 28 years old, and has played in Denmark, Sweden, Finland, Germany and Estonia. He arrives in Cyprus after spending the summer in Australia with the Townsville Heat in the Queensland Basketball League.
