Leeds Force are excited to confirm the signing of 6’7″ Kosovo international forward Gazmend Sinani.
Sinani, 26, links up with Leeds sporting a wealth of experience at an elite level of European basketball, most recently averaging 13 points per game with KB Rahoveci in the Kosovo Basketball Superleague – the top division of basketball in Kosovo.
At club level, Sinani also boasts stints playing in the Balkan International Basketball League with Kosovan teams KB Sigal Prishtina and KB Bashkimi Prizren – earning chances to play in the prestigious FIBA Europe Cup with the former in the 2015-16 season.
Sinani’s domestic successes have seen him rewarded with five appearances for the Kosovo national side, featuring prominently in the team’s quest for EuroBasket 2017 qualification.
The 26-year-old will be hoping to make an instant impact in the highly-competitive British Basketball League, as Leeds look to march up the league standings heading into the final few months of the campaign.
Tickets for Leeds Force’s next home clash against fierce Yorkshire rivals DBL Sharks Sheffield on Friday 16 February at 7:30PM will be available in the coming days via the official Leeds Force ticket portal linked below. #WeAreForce
