Joel Almeida
Coviran Granada (LEB Silver) added to their roster 31-year old Portuguese-Cape Verdean forward Joel Almeida (195-85, college: SUNY Brockport State) from Conservas de Cambados Xuven. In 26 LEB Silver games in Spain he had 14.3ppg, 6.1rpg, 1.1apg and 1.2spg last season. A very spectacular year in his career as he was named to Eurobasket.com All-Spanish LEB Silver 3rd Team and All-Bosmans Team.
The previous (14-15) season Almeida was tested by Apollon (Division A) in Cypriot league. He helped them to make it to the Supercup final.
Almeida won Cape Verde League championship title in 2009.
He represented Portugal at the Afrobasket Championships in Rades (Tunisia) last year. His stats at that event were 5 games: 1.6ppg, 2.6rpg.

He attended SUNY Brockport State until 2008 and it will be his ninth season as a professional player.
On Almeida: Joel Almeida is a deceiving combo guard / small forward that can also play the point very effectively. He is a great team player and also a great scorer. He has the ability to break down defenders and create for himself and others. He has good low post move if there is mismatch. He has range extends past the threepoint line and his strength allows him to finish in traffic with contact, or pull up from mid range. Joel is an aggressive defender, good offensive and defensive rebounder with an ability to lead by example. He is a student of the game and very coachable. He works hard day in and day out, you can call him a Gym rat, always looking to improve. He has great attitude, passion and dedication for the game of basketball.
