  follow us on Facebook Twitter

CSS Giurgiu has announced the signings of Import Center Bryson McKenzie (211-C-83, college: N.Illinois) and Import Forward Marcus Melvin (203-F-82, college: N.Carolina St.). Bryson McKenzie is a 6'11 (2.11m) Center from the USA (Indiana). He has played for the Los Angeles Lakers and Dallas Mavericks in the NBA Summer League as well as helped his club in Hungary to a division championship. Last season Bryson was a big part of the success in Romania for CSM Bucharest. He has great size, character, length, and work ethic that will translate to wins this season and a presence on the back line. For CSM last season, Bryson was 3rd in Romania in rebounds and 3rd in blocked shots. He shot over 58% from the floor and was a dominant finisher around the basket as well as a huge key to their interior defense. Bryson turned 29 years old this past July and brings with him the experience of playing overseas and against high level competition for some time.

Marcus Melvin is a 6'8 (2.03m) Forward from the USA (North Carolina) where he starred at North Carolina State as an All-ACC Tournament 1st team as a Junior competing in a tough conference with Duke, Wake Forest and North Carolina among others. The following season Marcus was 2nd team All-ACC and his team advanced to the ACC Tournament Championship game twice in consecutive seasons. A Portsmouth and Chicago NBA Pre-Draft participant, Marcus played for the Denver Nuggets in the NBA Summer League. He's since gone on to play in the top leagues around the World including Italy Serie-A, Turkey TBL, Lebannon, Phillipines, Puerto Rico, Argentina and Iran's Superleague. Marcus just turned 30 this past August and has the veteran experience competing against some of the better players around the World.
