Mateo Kedzo pótlására érkezik az amerikai Ashante Johonson. A Horváth légiós még a bajnokság kezdete előtt jelezte távozási szándékát, ám a pótlására kiszemelt játékos érkezését az Atom csapata mellett várta meg. A 203 centi magas, 32 éves amerikai 2002 óta szerepel az öreg kontinensen. Első évében a finn Tampere, majd 3 évig a cseh Nymburk csapatát erősítette, ahol több egyéni elismerést is bezsebelt. Az utóbbi 3 szezonban több kontinensen is megfordult. A játékos statisztikáiból ki kell emelni,hogy 13 pontnál kisebb átlagot még nem ért el. Ashantenek egy hete van, hogy meggyőzze a paksi vezetőket képességeiről, ebben az esetben a Körmend ellen már be is mutatkozhat a piros-kékeknél.
