Olimpia Milano Pops Mensah-Bonsu ASVEL Villeurbanne Basket Mercato Basket Rumors
The new name for AJ Milano is Pops Mensah-Bonsu. The British big man spent already one season in Italy with Benetton Treviso few years ago and then has played between NBA and Europe without big fortunes.
Pops started last season in the NBA with New Orleans Hornets but after seven games with 0.3ppg and 1.6rpg moved to France to ASVEL with whom he scored 16.5ppg and grabbed 9.3rpg.
Milano wants Pops Mensah-Bonsu to strenghten the frontline which has now Antonis Fotsis, Ioannis Bourousis, Mason Rocca and Benjamin Eze (the center will likely leave) plus Stefano Mancinelli who will be small forward in the plans of Sergio Scariolo.
