The failure of the season has not done to lower the arms to the basket barca, engaged in the project, led by Mirotic on the court, and by Jasikevicius on the bench you can pick up a title sooner rather than later. To achieve this, the club has decided to throw the house out the window, renewing their sign more important and recruiting to hit book to the talents shining of the Euroleague. It is the case of the Nick Calathes , whose arrival was confirmed yesterday by the Barcelona causing defensiveness in many of the rivals of the continental tournament.

it Was Sergio Llull the first to raise the voice on social networks. Half jokingly and half not, the spaniard was surprised by the disbursement of the Catalan club, after falling in the final of the ACBante the Baskonia has been renovated to Oriola and Kuric , in addition to closing the signings of Jasikevicius and Calathes. Only with two of them break already any limit wage, doing away with the barrier of 30 million in wages that seemed impossible a few years ago. “The club should have a wage cap similar to the NBA,” joked Shane Larkin, a player of Fenerbahçe and one of the best paid in Europe. With your critical evening, the american was to highlight a reality. That is the determination of Bartomeu to bring the Euroleague to Barcelona before the end of its mandate. To achieve this, the president barca is not going to be repaired in such charges and as it has become clear in recent days. In fact, there are still movements and signings – Pau Gasol has on the table an offer to be part of the team– to complete a template full of talent that is already the most valuable on the continent over the CSKA, Real Madrid or Fenerbahce.

With Calathes and Heurtel , the club will have two of the bases most resolute of Europe. The Greek is a pin exceptional and a scorer for sure in the key moments. Last year he averaged 13,3 points and 9.1 assists in the Euroleague. Meanwhile, the French have shown in the final phase of Valencia that, if the injuries respect him, is one of the best in his position.

The Calathes is just one more of the many movements made these days by the clubs of the CBA, which after dropping the curtain on the season in Valencia have been eager to tackle the next. In that way and coming players, there is a flashy trend, which is the return of many veterans to their origins. It is the case of Pau Ribas , that sick of the lack of minutes in Barcelona has put the course to Joventut, where he grew up as a player. Also Rafael Martínez , captain of the Valencia Basket for years, change of scenery to return to his home when he made his debut in the ACBhace 21 years.

there have Also been large movements, such as the Derrick Williams –number 2 in the draft for the NBA in 2011– by the Valencia Basket, or the march of Shengelia CSKA . The one who has not moved tab by the time it is Real Madrid, who could pay the clause of Alberto Abalde in the next few days.
