Brancou Papi Badio will move on from Barcelona and continue his career in Germany with Fraport Skyliners

By Alex Madrid /

Brancou ‘Papi’ Badio will play next season for the Fraport Skyliners. Despite the fact that, at first, his destination was supposed to be Forca Lleida as a result of the agreement between Barcelona and the team from Ilerdense, the Senegalese guard will terminate his connection with Barca in order to reach the German team totally free.

Diego Ocampo, the recently appointed coach of the Frankfurt-based team and who has already also worked at Barca B in the past, awaits him in Germany.

Badio represented Senegal in the recent Afrobasket, in which his team finished in third place thanks in part to the good performances of the 22-year-old. Last season, at Barca B, Badio averaged ten points, 3.7 rebounds, 2.2 assists, and 1.3 steal over 28 games with 25 minutes of playing time. He also logged nine games for the first team.
