Paris Basketball continued building its roster by signing power forward Mikael Jantunen for the next two seasons. Jantunen (2.04 meters, 23 years old) played for Nutribullet Treviso in the Italian League last season and averaged 8.2 points, 4.9 rebounds and 1.0 steal per game.
Jantunen first attracted attention at Helsinki Basketball Academy before heading overseas to play college basketball at the University of Utah. After two seasons with the Utes, Jantunen returned to Europe with Oostende, which he helped to the Belgian League championship in 2022 and was chosen as the league´s top sixth man. Now Jantunen will make his BKT EuroCup debut with Paris.
