THOMAS KELATI

Stelmet Enea BC Zielona Gora (EBL) signed experienced 36-year old former Polish international swingman Thomas Kelati (195-91kg-82, college: Washington State, agency: BeoBasket). He has a double citizenship as he also holds Eritrean passport. Kelati has played there for the last two seasons. He helped them to make it to the Supercup final and to the Cup final. Kelati played 16 games in Basketball Champions League where he averaged 7.3ppg, 1.5rpg and 2.1apg last season.
Among other achievements Kelati won Polish League championship title in 2017. He received also Eurobasket.com All-European Championships Honorable Mention award back in 2011.
Kelati represented Poland at the European Championships in Slovenia six years ago. His stats at that event were 5 games: 9.0ppg, 3.4rpg, 2.6apg, FGP: 52.6%, 3PT: 31.8%.
Kelati is a very experienced player. He has played also professionally in Belgium (Belfius Mons Hainaut), Greece (Olympiacos), Russia, Spain (Unicaja Malaga, Valencia Basket and UCAM Murcia) and NBA (LA Lakers).
It may be one of last seasons in his extensive career, which he may end at Stelmet Enea.
Kelati attended Washington State until 2005 and it will be his 14th (!!!) season in pro basketball.
Let's have closer look into His outlook: A swingman who improved in each of his seasons overseas, becoming ACB material. Has a very quick and effective first step, that allows him to beat almost anyone. Long arms and timing make him a very good rebounder for his size. Defense is adequate both on the 2 and 3, but has the athletic skills to improve it too.
