Jonathan Augustin-Fairell is the newest player at Denain-Voltaire after signing with the French club November 20. Fairell started the season in France, playing for Cholet Basket in the Jeep Elite LNB Pro A league. In 7 games played, Fairell averaged 7.0 points and 4.7 rebounds per game. Denain-Voltaire could certainly use his help, as they are off to a 2-4 start in the LNB Pro B league, France's second division.
Fairell is no stranger to the league, as he played the past two seasons. Last season with ADA Blois Basket 41, he averaged 11.9 points and 6.7 rebounds per game as he helped lead Blois Basket to first place and a promotion to LNB Pro A. He also played the 2016-2017 with Rouen Metropole Basket in the same league, putting up 14.5 points and 6.8 rebounds per game for the squad. This is Fairell's fourth year in pro basketball.
