Rei Pullazi is a new player for Bertram Derthona

Bertram Derthona is pleased to announce that it has reached an agreement with Rei Pullazi, a winger born in 93 who played in Serie A2 with Trapani last season.

CAREER – Born in Rome on 03/10/1993, Pullazi grew up in the youth sector of Eurobasket Roma and, in 2012/13, played in the DNB championship with the Basket Scauri shirt. The following year he moved to Recanati, with whom he contested the Serie A2 Silver championship, collecting twenty-four appearances.

He began the 2014/15 season in Serie A with the Virtus Roma shirt, before returning to Eurobasket Roma in Serie B, the team with which he ended the year. In the following two years, Pullazi played in Bergamo in DNB, reaching the playoffs on both occasions and the Final Four for promotion to Serie A2 in the 2016/17 season.

In 2017/18 Rei moved to Legnano, in A2, where he scored 8.7 points on average and was among the protagonists of the brilliant season of the Lombard team, which reached the playoffs, finishing in third place - behind Junior Casale and Scafati - the regular season, being then eliminated 3-0 by Verona in the round of XNUMX playoffs.

Last year the winger wore the Trapani jersey, still in the West Group of Serie A2, scoring 11.2 points on average to which he added 8.8 rebounds in 26 minutes of average usage. With the Sicilian team he entered the promotion playoffs, which ended with a 3-2 elimination in the round of XNUMX playoffs against Treviso Basket, then promoted to Serie A. Now he arrives at Bertram Derthona to begin a new chapter in his career.

Thus Marco Picchi, CEO of Bertram Derthona: ʺIt is no mystery that, on our part, there has been particular attention towards Pullazi for some time. We consider him an absolutely central player in the growth project that we aim to achieve: this is the reason why we have tied ourselves to Rei with a multi-year contract. I thank him publicly for the enthusiasm with which he chose Derthona, showing us that we too were a first choice for him: this detail, in our intentions today, makes a big difference..

These are the first words of Rei Pullazi: ʺThe call from an ambitious club like Tortona made me happy: the choice to accept the proposal was quick as my desire is to play in a team that wants to win. The presence of coach Marco Ramondino and a solid club represent the right mix I was looking for for my new experience: I am very motivated and excited, I intend to prepare myself as best I can and I will give everything to be able to do the best for this shirtʺ.
