Jerusalem adds experience and scoring with Kinsey
Hapoel Bank Yahav Jerusalem continued building a strong, deep and competitive roster with the addition of a veteran swingman Tarence Kinsey who signed a two-year deal, club announced on Saturday evening. Kinsey (2.00 meters, 32 years old) split last season between Trabzonspor Medical Park in Turkey and Crvena Zvezda Telekom Belgrade in Serbia. In a starting role with Zvezda he helped the Serbian powerhouse to one of the best seasons in club history. Kinsey helped the team reach Turkish Airlines EuroLeague playoffs for the first time ever by posting 9.6 points, 2.2 rebounds, 1.9 assists and 1.1 steals. Domestically, Kinsey contributed in Zvezda winning Adriatic League and Serbian League. Kinsey has seven EuroLeague seasons under his belt, but last season was the only time he played in EuroCup when he wore a Trabzonspor uniform. He averaged 12.2 points, 6.4 rebounds and 2 assists during the regular season. Kinsey began his Euroleague career with Fenerbahce Istanbul in the 2007-08 season. After one season in the NBA with Cleveland, he returned to Istanbul for two more seasons with Fenerbahce before spending the 2011-12 campaign with Anadolu Efes Istanbul. Kinsey has since played for Victoria Libertas Pesaro in Italy, Unicaja Malaga in Spain, Partizan in Serbia, Nizhny Novgorod in Russia and Trabzonspor in Turkey. He has also played for Memphis in the NBA. Kinsey helped Fenerbahce win three Turkish League (2008, 2010 and 2011) and two Turkish Cup titles (2010 and 2011) in his three seasons with the club. He also reached the Turkish League finals with Efes in 2012.
