Dolomiti Energia Trento completed its roster for the 2017-18 season by signing Yannick Franke to a two-year contract. Franke (1.95 meters, 21 years old) spent time last season with Croatian club Zadar, with which he averaged 5.9 points and 2.0 rebounds in seven Adriatic League games. He had also signed with Greek clubs Promitheas Patras and AEK Athens earlier in the season, but did not play for either side. Franke began his career with ZZ Leiden and also played for Challenge Sports Rotterdam and Donar Groningen in his native Netherlands as well as for Bisons Loimaa in Finland. He played for the Netherlands national team at EuroBasket 2015 and at this summer’s FIBA Basketball World Cup 2019 prequalifiers.
