NBL: City Oilers Add Four Players


Seven-time National Basketball League champions City Oilers are bolstering their squad with four new additions.

These are headlined by Kenyan duo of shooting guard Davis Siaji who joins from Equity Bank and Centre Bramwell Muchina from Kenyatta University.

However, the Kenyan may delay to join the team because of commitments with the Kenya National Basketball 3×3 team that is preparing for the 2022 Commonwealth Games in Birmingham.

Francis Azolibe is also set to play for the side in the second round after missing out on the concluded First round due to late registration.

The Nigerian returns to the team since leaving in 2020 after his two-year contract was terminated, going on to join Nam Blazers then.

His first spell at Oilers, despite winning the seventh title with the side, was covered by a knee injury he suffered against Warriors in the playoffs.

The other addition is Silverbacks forward Mohammed Ghedi Abdihakim, son to team Manager Hajji Santur.

The additions will be a big boost for Oilers who finished the first round second behind UCU Canons.

The club is expected to lose small forward Luak Ruai who is reportedly flying out to Spain in July/August to further his studies.
