Artland Dragons (Germany) sign Blazers SL surprise Ekene Ibekwe


The power forward (25) signed a one-year contract, and joins former Trail Blazer Ruben Boumtje Boumtje there who has played in the first German pro league for a while now. His new head coach is quoted stating that the team was looking for a defensive presence on the boards which Ibekwe would fit very well as "an exceptional athlete, good rebounder and shot blocker".
