Rooks return close to completion
US point guard Cameron Cornelius has extended his contract with Depiro Basketball Club, the Mtarfa club announced on Monday.
A confirmation of a Times of Malta report in July, Cornelius, who was in his debut season in Malta last campaign has now put pen to paper for another season with the team.
“I am happy to be back and looking forward to the upcoming season,” Cornelius said upon re-signing.
“I really love the country, Malta, and Depiro is a great club. Can’t wait to start.”
The 6’0 player had joined last summer after a stint in Romania with Focsani in the Romanian Division A. He was one of two players, together with Kameron Rooks, who is also on the verge of being confirmed as a returning import player for the club, to be signed by the club then coached by Brian Semonian. In spite of having been knocked points due to previous incidents, Depiro managed to make it to the Playoffs anyway and both players are now set to be rewarded with another contract.
In a club statement, Depiro Head Coach, Ruben Baldacchino believes his experience remains an asset to the team.
“Cameron has been great to us last season and we decided to keep building the team around him, together with those who performed well,” Baldacchino said.
“He’s a great guy and brings leadership together with his vast experience in top European leagues abroad will definitely strengthen our team. Looking forward to having him back with the team.”
