Umana Venice signs Tonut through 2019
One of the best Italian prospects is set to make his Eurocup debut next season, as Umana Reyer Venice announced the arrival of shooting guard Stefano Tonut, who penned a four-year deal with his new team on Wednesday. Tonut (1.94 meters, 21 years old) arrives from Pallacanestro Trieste, where he averaged 18.8 points, 4 rebounds and 2 steals in 37 Italian second division games last season, being the competition's fourth-best scorer. Tonut started his career with Falconstar Monfalcone and joined Trieste in 2012. He helped the Italian U20 national team to win a gold medal at the 2013 European Championships played in Tallinn, Estonia. His father, Alberto Tonut, had a long career and helped the Italian national team win a gold medal at EuroBasket 1983.
