After the recent announcement of the first-ever player, Winnipeg’s new basketball team is starting to build a script.

The second signing of the Winnipeg Sea Bears, the team announced Friday, is Toronto native Shane Osayande, a six-foot-seven forward who has played in the Canadian Elite Basketball League (CEBL) and overseas for the group in Spain, Germany and Lebanon – among other countries.

Osayande, who played three years for the University of Saskatchewan before turning pro, was teammates with Chad Posthumus, the Sea Bears’ first signing, in their 2019 CEBL championship matchup with the Saskatchewan Rattlers.

“It is always an honor and a great opportunity to play in the CEBL, however only for a new organization,” Osayande said in a statement.

“I’m excited to see the community of Manitoba, my teammates and coaching staff, and most importantly, all the great Sea Bears fans.”

The Sea Bears, who joined the league in November of 2022, have announced only Posthumus, Osayande and head coach Mike Taylor ahead of their inaugural season, which begins on May 27 with a home game at the Life Center Canada against the Vancouver Bandits.
