KIU Titans have raided Nam Blazers camp and have finally acquired Amisi Saidi Danny Carmelo and two other players from last year’s NBL runners up.
The other two who have crossed over are Guard Collins Kasujja and Forward Peter Obleng, with the duo making a return to the Kansaga-based side.
Brian Opiyo and Innocent Ochera have also joined the club, signing from UPDF Tomahawks and Power respectively.

Stylish point guard Michael Bwanga is reportedly in the country as well to finalist his deal back to KIU Titans.
Carmelo, as Amisi prefers to be called, was arguably the best player of regular season last term.
He notched an average of 15 points and 7.6 rebounds for Nam Blazers who lost to City Oilers in game seven of the finals series.
Kasujja, when earlier contacted last week by this website, hinted on Nam Blazers exit, but said that his deal away from the club was just 50% pending.
This is the latest move from KIU Titans Club President Nasser Sserunjogi who doubles as the FUBA President, to go out all guns blazing for the new season that tip off on March 10.
The developments have reportedly left Nam Blazers top officials reeling, claiming that the FUBA boss is stifling the opponents at the expense of strengthening his franchise.
It’s strong to add that Nam Blazers beat KIU Titans last year in the semifinals series, and with new additions, they will front themselves as the new opposition to remove the dictator (City Oilers).
Titans are expected to be loaded, in case they keep a big chunk of last year’s squad that had the likes of Stanley Mugerwa, Fidel Okoth, Joseph Chuma, Edgar Munaaba, Henry Okoth, Ahmed Kassa among others.
Elvis Mutebi, Joseph Dramaza, Mike Othieno, Abdi Abdikani and Gaius Mahamba have been released by the KIU Titans while Rajab Mpiima has been sent out on loan to lower division side Sommet (former YMCA Hamsters).
