Grissin Bon Reggio Emilia announced that it is extending its relationship with point guard Andrea Cinciarini by adding another year to his existing contract. Accordingly, the sides will remain together through the summer of 2016. Cinciarini (1.93 meters, 28 years old) has spent the last two seasons with Reggio Emilia, helping the club to the historic success of winning the FIBA EuroChallenge last season with 12.0 points, 6.3 assists and 5.1 rebounds. In the Italian League, Cinciarini averaged 12.4 points, 6.5 assists, 4.9 rebounds and 1.5 steals per game. He also played for Scavolini Pesaro, Senigallia, Pistoia, Montegranaro, Pavia and Cantu.

"The extension with Cinciarini gives us continuity to the work accomplished in recent years," Sports Director Alessandro Frosini said. "Andrea proved to be a landmark on the court, growing together with the team that was newly promoted to Serie A to winning the first international trophy in the history of the club. We wanted to start afresh, for him to continue with us on our path of growth. "
