Paris Basketball has secured the arrival of Killian Malwaya on a three-year contract. Malwaya (1.97 meters, 17 years old) joins from LCLC ASVEL Villeurbanne, with which he played seven games in the Adidas Next Generation Tournament Belgrade and Adidas Next Generation Tournament Belgrade Finals last season, posting averages of 17.1 points, 5.7 rebounds and 1.3 steals. As a result of his performances in the ANGT Belgrade in February 2022, when he averaged 20.0 points, 5.5 rebounds and 1.2 steals, he was named Most Valuable Player of the tournament. Malwaya could make his 7DAYS EuroCup debut if he gets on the floor for Paris next season.

Malwaya, a France international at under-17 level, has spent his entire career to date developing in the ASVEL youth system. On the European stage, he first appeared in the Adidas Next Generation Tournament Valencia in 2019-20, doing so off the bench, before featuring in the same tournament one year later as a starter. In the Adidas Next Generation Tournament Valencia Finals, Malwaya started all three games, but it was in the 2021-22 season when he took a big step forward. He will now hope to continue his upwards trajectory with Paris, which also has a number of other exciting prospects on its roster.
