The Club reaches agreement with Bayern Munich to incorporate the American, with Bosnian passport, who arrives on a free transfer until the end of the season

Gregory Alexander Renfroe has joined FC Barcelona Lassa from Bayern Munich until the end of the season.

The 30-year-old American, who has a Bosnian passport, has experience in the Liga Endesa, previously playing for Valladolid (2012/13) and Baskonia (2013/14) – and last season averaged close to ten points, five rebounds and five assists per game in the Euroleague and the German League.

European career

Coming through the ranks at Belmont University, his first European team was VEF Riga in 2009/10, before moving to Zagreb (2010/11) and then to Italy to play for Brindisi. 2012/13 saw him at Valladolid and then Bamberg, while the following season he moved to Russia for Yenisey Krasnoyarsk and ended the year at Baskonia.

In 2014/15, he signed for Alba Berlin and played two matches against Barça Lassa in the Top 16. Finally, in the summer of 2015 he was signed by Bayern Munich.

Fits the bill

Rodrigo de la Fuente, sporting manager of Barça Lassa, says Renfroe "is a player who meets the profile we are looking for and has evolved a lot throughout his career. He understands the game and can contribute during moments when the team needs it”.

De la Fuente also explains that he “is a player who is intelligent and capable of adding other facets such as assists and rebounds. He knows the competition well and arrives in good form to join the team”.
