FC Bayern Munich bolstered its frontcourt by inking center Ondrej Balvin to a one-year deal, with an option for another season, on Monday. Balvin (2.17 meters, 23 years old) arrives from Baloncesto Sevilla, where he played for the last six seasons. He averaged 9.6 points and 7.4 rebounds in 34 Spanish League games last season, leading the competition in dunks (2.32 per game). Balvin helped Sevilla reach the Eurocup title game in 2011, even when he only saw a total playing time of 3 seconds that season. He amassed 108 points and 95 rebounds in 26 Eurocup career games. Balvin pulled down 19 boards in a game against CEZ Basketball Nymburk, the third-best single-game rebounding effort in competition history. He also played for USK Prague and has been a member of the Czech Republic's national team. "I am very grateful for this opportunity to take the next step in my career," Balvin said. "I hope to have a good season with my new team and of course to win titkes. My strengths are pick and roll plays, rebounds, good defense and of course, dunking."
