Madei Bayreuth signs deal with Canadian international Young

113 kg heavy, 2.06 m tall and 25 years old: these are the key data for Medi Bayreuth’s new center player Calif Young. A few days after the departure of Andreas Seyferth, the Bundesliga basketball team recruited new staff for the position of center player.

Head coach Lars Masel already has accurate ideas about the merits of the newcomer, having signed a one-year contract to the city of Wagner. “I would describe him primarily as a pick and roll center. He has a strong offensive reflex, can defend very physically, has sharp legs and top athleticism.”

Caliph Young: From Turkey and Poland to Upper Franconia

Born in Vaughan, Canada, just 40 kilometers north of Toronto, Young played for the Providence Friars in Rhode Island for four years until 2020. The 25-year-old began his career in Europe in the Second Turkish League in Bronova, a district in Izmir. Young has been playing in Poland since last summer and was able to finish the main round with arni Slupsk as table leader. In the playoffs, however, they failed in the semi-finals with a 2:3 finish at eventual Polish champions lsk Breslau. The center player has made 15 appearances for the senior national team for his country of birth, Canada.

Third new signing for Medi Bayreuth

At Medie Bayreuth, Young is the third new signing for the new season, which begins at the end of September, following Brandon Childress and Osaro Jurgen Rich.
