Swiss-American winger Anthony Polite will begin his professional career at ASVEL.

ASVEL formalized the arrival of the American-Swiss winger on Wednesday Anthony Polite (1.98 m, 25 years old) for the next two seasons. Very present on the rebound and effective at long distance, this versatile 3 post densifies the Rhone outdoor sector. He will want to be complementary to David Lighty.

“It’s a bet in which we believe a lot, explains Michel Veyronnet, the deputy director in charge of the athlete. Anthony has a lot to prove, wants to show things at the highest level. He will compensate for his lack of experience of the European game with his energy, his commitment, his determination. And we are convinced that he will be the perfect complement to David Lighty on position 3. “

Anthony Polite is currently playing in the Summer League with San Antonio. It also has a clause in the event of an offer from Spurs. Rookie since he leaves the University of Florida State, the native of Lugano will discover the EuroLeague next season. After Jackson-Cartwright, Obasohan and Matthews, he is the fourth foreign player in the 2022-2023 Rhone squad. At least one foreign interior should be added to the group, with why not the extension of Youssoupha Fall.

  • Position 1: Parker Jackson-Cartwright and Matthew Strazel
