6’2” Saipe, returns for his third season in Dragons’ colours, having first joined the club in 2014 from neighbouring Leeds Force. Having spent most of his first season in Bradford colours as a bench player, he firmly established himself in the starting five last time around. Known for his tenacious defending, Saipe is also a capable shooter and rebounder at the offensive end.
“I’m looking forward to the new season and improving on last season by reaching the playoffs,” commented Saipe. “I know that if we work hard, play together and listen to the coaching staff that this will be doable. Manchester Magic is our first competitive game, which will be a good test against last season’s quadruple champions.”
Meanwhile, 6’0” Camille, who has experience of playing in the elite British Basketball League with Leeds Force, will be starting his first full season for the Dragons. Having joined just before the closure of the transfer window this January, Camille was quick to excite the Bradford supporters with his tricky footwork and speed.
