Umana Reyer Venice added depth and athleticism to its roster by inking forward Jordan Parks, the club announced Saturday. Parks (2.01 meters, 28 years old) arrives from Gevi Napoli Basket, where he averaged 14.3 points, 7.3 rebounds and 1.5 steals in 29 Italian second division games last season. He started his career with Pallacanestro Trieste 2004 and has played for several other Italian teams such as Banfapp Capo d'Orlando and Treviso Basket 2012, as well as for Telekom Baskets Bonn of Germany. He helped Napoli to win the Italian second division double - league and cup titles - in 2021.
Reyer brings in forward Parks
“I am thrilled and grateful for this opportunity. Reyer is a historic club with a winning culture, I am proud to be part of this family. I have seen many games in Venice in recent years, in particular I remember the Italian League final against Sassari," Parks said after the agreement. "I arrive to an ambitious club that has a great desire to win. In recent years, Reyer has built something important and now I want to give my contribution, too. I have already been to Venice and it will be wonderful to represent this city, I can't wait to get to know it better."
