It is official. Cibona announced that they signed a one-year contract with American player Melvin Cleveland. This 26-year old small forward studied at DePaul University and had quite good stats in the NCAA League. During his 4 years at DePaul University he averaged 16.3 points and 6.4 rebounds.

After finishing his studies, Cleveland was not selected in the NBA Draft, so he decided to continue his basketball career oversees. He played in Hungary for Alba Fehervar, while he spent the previous season in Al Moutahed Tripoli (Lebanon) where he averaged 19.8 points and 10 rebounds per game.

Recall that Cibona had previously signed another American player - Langston Hall.
