ALBA Berlin announced a three-year contract extension with youngster Tim Schneider, who will be a fulltime member of the club's first roster from now on. Schneider (2.08 meters, 19 years old) already made his 7DAYS EuroCup debut last season, taking part in a couple of games and totalling five minutes on court. He also played for Lokomotive Bernau, averaging 10 points and 5.3 rebounds in 26 German third division games last season. Schneider has also been a member of the German U20 national team. "ALBA was always the first option for me, I have the ideal conditions to develop myself as a player," Schneider said after the agreement. "I look forward to learning from coach Aito (Garcia Reneses) and of course to continue to play in my home."
