Taiwo Badmus will return to Spain for the 2020-21 season after signing with LEB Gold side Coruna, it was recently announced.
The London-born Ireland international has spent the past two seasons with Marin, helping the team to promotion in the 2018-19 campaign as MVP in the playoffs in his first year as a pro.
Badmus averaged 12.7 points and 5.8 rebounds per game in LEB Gold – Spain’s second tier – last season with his side avoiding relegation due to the coronavirus pandemic halting the season, despite being in last place with just four wins from 24.
Buenos días #FamiliaNaranja 😊

The 26-year-old forward helped Ireland to a bronze medal at the 2018 FIBA European Championship for Small Countries with a spot on the All-Tournament Team after averaging 14.0 points and 7.3 rebounds per game.
Coruna had a 16-8 record in LEB Gold last season as they finished in third spot, just outside the promotion places to Liga ACB, with Ashley Hamilton on the roster.
