Umana Reyer Venice ensured that team captain Michael Bramos will lead the team for a sixth consecutive season by re-signing the veteran swingman on Thursday. Bramos (1.96 meters, 33 years old) averaged 10.8 points on 41.4% three-point shooting and 3.7 rebounds in 16 7DAYS EuroCup games last season. In his five seasons with Reyer, Bramos has helped the club reach a new golden age. His first title with Reyer was the 2017 Italian League crown. It was the club's first title in 75 years. Bramos has lifted three more trophies with Reyer, one per year: the FIBA Europe Cup in 2018, another Italian championship in 2019 and the Italian Cup in 2020. Bramos started his career with Peristeri Athens of Greece. He also played for Gran Canaria of Spain and Panathinaikos Athens of Greece before joining Reyer in 2015. Bramos helped Panathinaikos win back-to-back Greek League and Cup doubles in 2013 and 2014. He has also been a member of the Greek national team.
"I am happy and grateful to continue being part of Reyer, which has become my second family. We have shared unforgettable moments in the past seasons that I will always carry within me," Bramos said after the agreement. "Six seasons with the same club are a great achievement in sports. It is really rare for an athlete to stay so long with a club. I am proud to be part of this organization that has always believed firmly in me by providing a structure that facilitates the work of us athletes, enabling us to do our the best. I am also grateful to be part of the city of Venice and I am glad that my family feels like it is a second home. My children grew up in Venice, this special place will always occupy a big part of our lives."
