Niccolò Filoni is a new Leo

Niccolo Filoni is a new player for Bertram Derthona: the club announces that it has reached an agreement with the winger born in 2001, fresh from his experience at Kleb Basket Ferrara.

CAREER – Born in L'Aquila (AQ) on 11 March 2001, Filoni took his first steps in minibasketball and the youth sector of Nuovo Basket L'Aquilano. Niccolò then continued his career in the youth sector of Oxygen Bassano, a club with which he also made his debut at senior level, in the Venetian Serie C Gold.

In the summer of 2018 he wore the national 3x3 Under 18 tank top while participating in the Youth Olympics in Buenos Aires. On that occasion she won the bronze medal in the slam dunk competition. In 2019 Filoni is captain of the Italy Under 18 team which finishes in ninth place at the European Championships held in Greece. In 2019/20 he played in Rieti, his first adventure in A2, scoring 3.6 points per game on average.

In the last two years, he took the field with Kleb Basket Ferrara (Serie A2), contributing to the playoffs in both seasons. Now he comes to Bertram Derthona to start a new chapter in his career.

Thus coach Marco Ramondino: “We were looking for a player who had potential to explore and, at the same time, the intelligence and maturity to understand, accept and grow in the role we were offering him. Niccolò responds to this identikit. He is a young player, 21 years old, who has several years of experience in excellent performing teams in A2. We are aware that the impact with Serie A can be tough, but his mentality and predisposition for team play will be important qualities for our team and to allow him to establish himself at the highest level.".
