Jakim for new pastures
One of local basketball’s best-loved figures will be missing from the CB Canarias line-up as of October after deciding to try his fortune elsewhere.

21.08.2013 -

Jakim Donaldson’s contract has not been renewed by the ACB club and he announced recently that he had signed for Israeli premiership outfit Bnei Herzliya.  The Pittsburgh centre was a crowd idol at Canarias, where he spent six seasons in two separate stints, playing a total of 226 games, a club record for a non-Spaniard.  His athletic jumping to capture impossible rebounds and net spectacular slam dunks will go down in memory at the La Laguna club, which issued a warm message wishing him all the best in his new adventure.  Days after news of his departure was confirmed, Donaldson sent a letter to Canarias fans thanking them for the wonderful time he spent here, which made him “a better person and better player”.
