Judicaël Romaric Belemene Dzabatou (born February 19, 1997 in Pointe-Noire) is a Congolese professional basketball player for Legia Warszawa of the PLK.

Career[edit]

Belemene hails from the Republic of the Congo. As a teenager, he attended the Serge Ibaka Camp[1] and then joined the Spanish club Unicaja as a 14-year-old. He played in Unicaja’s youth set-up and in 2013 earned himself a spot on the roster of the club’s second men’s team. He made quite an impression his first year, averaging 9.3 points and 5.6 boards per contest in EBA play.[2] Belemene also saw playing time at Clinicas Rincón in the LEB Oro, the second tier of basketball in Spain. In the course of the 2014-15 campaign, Belemene made his debut on Unicaja’s first team in the top league ACB,[3] while mainly seeing playing time at Clinicas Rincón. He made a leap forward statistically at Rincón in 2015-16, scoring 14.9 points per outing to go along with 5.6 rebounds a game in 34 appearances in the LEB Plata.[4]

He was an early entry candidate for the 2016 NBA draft, but decided to withdraw his name from consideration.[5] In July 2016, he inked a two-year deal with ACB side Bàsquet Manresa.[6]

On July 24, 2018, he parted ways with Unicaja of the Liga ACB.[7]

On June 24, 2019 he has signed deal with Legia Warszawa of the PLK.[8]
