Earlier this month the Montenegrin Blagota Sekulic made was leaving Turkey to play for Fenerbahçe Ülker and now leaves Mike Muscala, who during the month of February has rejected offers up to two Euroleague teams, according to advance Galician SCQ Magazine Basket Magazine. He leaves to fulfill a dream, to play in the NBA. The Atlanta Hawks were his services last night Draft (2013, chosen by the Hawks in position 44)) and the Hawks themselves who have reached an agreement with Rio Natura Monbus to take that was still the best compostelano player set. shall pass through box, but leave the paint in the orphan Fontes do Sar , is that Oriol Junyent was injured in the match against Joventut FIATC and should be between 2-3 weeks of low (approximately).
Mike Muscala, a 6'11 power forward and 22 meters, was becoming one of the revelations of the Endesa League. See your numbers, check where that is among the best in the league with 15 points and 8 rebounds per game.
Interestingly, the Rio Natura Monbus is the only team in the Endesa League which is, at this point in the season, not the interiors with which he began the course. before Muscala was Nik Minnerath who packed up to leave for France. With the money the U.S. has signed a Berzins , who has already debuted with the team Compostela. Now with the money leaving the American franchise by Mike the club could be reinforced with an inner quality. Or spare her and tying an interior (or exterior) next summer. The goal of salvation is practically achieved after harvesting a run of five straight wins.
Muscala would be able to come over via a buyout through a contractual clause and also because, as an NBA second round pick, the Hawks didn't have to declare he wouldn't play the whole season, unlike Lucas Nogueira.
