French League champion Limoges CSP continued to fill the paint for its return to the Turkish Airlines Euroleague next season with the addition of rebounding ace Ousmane Camara, who inked a three-year deal on Monday. Camara (2.02 meters, 25 years old) arrives from BCM Gravelines, where he spent last two seasons and, in the last one, had a solid Eurocup debut, averaging 8.4 points and 6.6 rebounds. In the French League, he had 7.5 points and 8.1 rebounds, the competition’s third-best, per contest. Camara started his professional career with Le Havre in 2009, and has stayed there until 2012 when he joined Gravelines, helping the latter to win the Leaders Cup in 2013. He also won a silver medal with France at U20 European Championship in 2009. He is the second signing for the Limoges frontcourt this summer, after the club acquired experienced veteran center Joao Paulo Batista to a two-year deal. Former continental champion Limoges returns to Euroleague for the first time since 1998.
