"I'm excited to join the team, to start a new chapter. I finished the season in the French championship last year, was able to play in Dijon and I really liked it. I can't wait to arrive to meet everyone," Saibou said about his decision to come to play in Dijon.

31-year-old (1.88) spent the 2020-21 season playing for Champagne Chalons-Reims Basket where he averaged 12.8 points, 3.3 rebounds, and 2.4 assists in the French LNB Pro A league.

Saibou shone brightly in the FIBA Men's Olympic Qualifying Tournament in Split, Croatia, a couple of weeks ago, where registered 10.5 points, 3.8 rebounds, and 2 assists in 4 games and helped Germany to advance to Tokyo Olympics.

JDA Dijon will play in the Basketball Champions League. The team will face Nizhny Novgorod (Russia), Unicaja Malaga (Spain), and Lavrio Megabolt (Greece) in Group C.
