    Mirotic official!

    3 year long contract with an option for another year. Will be presented on Monday.

    Cory Higgins, Brandon Davies, Nikola Mirotic and Álex Abrines should be next!

    Impressive stuff to put it mildly.

    Pesic renewing until 2021 is great news. He has been one of the main reasons for our return to the top after a very, very pathetic state given the history and standards of our basketball section, especially in more recent decades.

    Pangos won't continue and it is almost a given that Singleton will follow suit.

    If we could just get rid of freaking Tomic, I would be very happy.
    11 days later and all 4 have been signed. Impressive.

    Have to give credit to the work of Nacho Rodríguez. The team that we are building is arguably one of the strongest European teams ever. On paper that is. Will be exciting to see how it will work in practice. The expectations will be huge but I would be a bit cautious given the desert wandering in recent years. From 16 league championships from 1980 to 2012 to the past 5 years of horrible (overall despite some trophies here and there) performances.

    What is baffling is why it took so long? In particular with Bartomeu at the helm who is more well-versed in the world of basketball than any other section. Not even 2 years of dominance home and abroad will justify the past 5+ horrible seasons overall, absurd transfers and no sporting project in sight.
    Bartomeu Dimissió!
