Senegalese champions AS Douanes have signed a new player with Gerel Simmons. The 26-year old American comes over from UMF Tindastoll in Iceland. Simmons is a 1.88m tall guard and is the fourth new player on the Douanes roster.
Afrobasket.com reported the signing today. Simmons played college basketball for Lincoln Memorial until 2016. After, he moved to Bulgaria to play for Rilski Sportist. This year he played in Iceland.
Earlier, the team already signed four Senegalese players.
The season for Douanes was supposed to begin March 13th, however the season was postponed due to the outbreak of the coronavirus. We will have to wait and see when Simmons will make his debut for Douanes in the BAL.
