Limoges adds forward Ginyard
Limoges CSP reached an agreement with forward Marcus Ginyard, who signed a one-year deal with the French powerhouse on Friday. Ginyard (1.96 meters, 32 years old) arrives from Arka Gdynia, where he averaged 8.5 points on excellent shooting percentages (63.2% 2FG, 40.4% 3FG) and 3.2 rebounds in 25 Polish League games last season. He started the 2018-19 season with CSU Oradea, averaging 8.1 points and 4.1 rebounds in 15 Romanian League games before joining Arka. Ginyard started his professional basketball career with BBC Bayreuth of Germany and also played for Ironi Nahariya of Israel, Anwil Wloclawek, Energa Czarni Slupsk and Stelmet Zielona Gora of Poland, Azovmash Mariupol of Ukraine, Westchester of the D-League, Panionios of Greece, Hermine Nantes Atlantique of France and Rabotnicki, to which he helped win the FYROM league title in 2018. Ginyard also played the NCAA Tournament final four with North Carolina in 2008. "Marcus is a player that matched our idea of raising our defensive level. He is not a stats player and will bring us physicality," Limoges sports director Crawford Palmer said. "We see Marcus as a very good complement to William Howard - he can play with him and go behind him to put pressure on him. He will play with selflessness but is also able to score, especially from three-point range."
