A new era is underway at FC Bayern Munich, with two-time Turkish Airlines EuroLeague champion Pablo Laso arriving as head coach. The appointment of Coach Laso comes on the back of Bayern's development of a new arena, SAP Garden, which is expected to be completed in the spring of 2024. In addition to the blockbuster signing of Serge Ibaka, a handful of youthful additions have been made to add some extra excitement to the roster ahead of what should be a fascinating season for Bayern.
Bayern has a couple of new faces in its backcourt, with Carsen Edwards arriving from Fenerbahce Beko Istanbul and Sylvain Francisco joining from Peristeri. Edwards showed glimpses of his talent in his rookie EuroLeague season last year, but the goal will now be to show that on a consistent basis under Coach Laso. Francisco, meanwhile, previously played in the BKT EuroCup with Metropolitans 92 in the 2017-18 campaign, but he has become a France international since then and will be keen to show what he can do in Europe's premier club basketball competition. Bayern also brought Nelson Weidemann back to the club from Chemnitz this summer, following four seasons away on loan.
