After Ratiopharm Ulm signed the giant Spanish talent Juan Nunez a few days ago, the German team has once again picked up a promising player on the European talent market.

The 17-year-old Pacome Dadiet, who went through the youth program at Paris Basketball, signs a long-term contract with Ulm and was already present in the team practice at the start of training camp today, according to BasketNews sources.

The 2.00-meter winger is considered one of the most exciting talents in Europe from the 2005 age group.

He just finished third with his French national team at the U17 World Cup in Malaga and made a valuable contribution to their success. In about an average of 14 minutes of playtime, he delivered 4.3 points, 2.2 assists, and 1.4 rebounds.

However, the +/- statistic is particularly noteworthy, in which he boasts a strong average of +4.2. He also shot 50% from the three-point line.

Dadiet had a solid contribution in France last season. In the second team of Paris Basketball, Expoirs Paris, the then-16-year-old put up averages of 17.3 points, 1.7 assists, and 5.2 rebounds in 22 games.

He also appeared 8 times with just under 7 minutes of playing time in the first team but did not post any notable statistics.

It is known that Ulm with its Orange Campus is one of the top addresses in Europe for young, highly skilled, and ambitious players.

Kilian Hayes (now Detroit Pistons), Will Clyburn (now Anadolu Efes), Daniel Theis (now Boston Celtics), and many others proved themselves there and made it to the highest level.

Obviously, it doesn't go unnoticed by many agents and players. How far Pacome Dadiet can make it is probably up to him alone, the prerequisites are given to him in any case.
