Reading Rockets have added a Spaniard to their roster with the signing of Matias Boho Sayo for the 2019-2020 season. The 6’5 small forward becomes the fourth player to put pen to paper for the Berkshire club’s twenty-second senior campaign.
The 23-year-old joins the Rockets after a number of seasons in Spain’s EBA league most recently with Refitel Basquet Lliria. Boho Sayo brings a real perimeter threat to the Reading team but will also be a valuable presence on the glass and in the paint sometimes playing at the four position.
In speaking ahead of his arrival to Reading, Boho Sayo said he is really looking forward to the new challenges that lie ahead and can’t wait to get started with his new team. He said,
“I think joining the Reading Rockets is a great opportunity for me. Many people I have spoken to are very positive about the club and the city and I think I can help the club achieve its goals. I consider myself a player and a person who can contribute very positive things to the dynamics of the team and I can’t wait to get to know the city, my teammates and all the people who are part of the club and to start working hard from day one. I am really looking forward to wearing the Rockets uniform. LET’S GO ROCKETS!”
“Matias is someone who can play on the perimeter and inside, a bit of a slasher, which is something we have been lacking so he is a really good pick up for us. His athleticism will really suit our style of play and being young and exuberant will really give us a lift for sure. We are looking forward to Matias joining us in Reading as we put together a young, but really exciting roster for the season ahead.”
We will have one more signing to round of the week so check back tomorrow at midday for number five!
