These aren’t breaking news since the Euroleague announced this move yesterday already but it might be interesting. You might think why somebody would want to leave a club like Panathinaikos even if you don’t play. Just sit on the bench and increase your value just by being a Euroleague champion. Well, OK we don’t know if the Greens will win another Euroleague title yet but it is obvious that you either join another good club or you get a lot of money.
Both things might have happened to Milos Vujanic since Russia is probably one of the best paying countries in Europe – regarding Basketball. Since the Euroleague rules prevent, that a player can switch to another Euroleague team during the season Milos left for a ULEB cup team.
You might want to think – oh come on a ULEB cup team – they get killed by any Euroleague team, right? Well, this is what the experts like Jonathan Givony from draftexpress have to say about Milos’ new club Dynamo Moscow:
Dynamo smoked Red Star. 20+ point game here mid-way through the 4th. Dynamo looks like one of the best European teams I’ve seen this year in any competition (also considering the Fortitudo game I saw of theirs two weeks ago). Their defense is outstanding, they do a phenomenal job getting into transition and getting easy baskets, they’ve got two incredible weapons on the wing in Domercant (maybe in the best shape of his career) and Hansen, as well as terrific size inside with Fotsis, Prkacin and Javtokas.
Considering this, it might have been the best move for Dynamo AND Milos. So watch out for Dynamo!
I don’t know if Dynamo will play with Vujanic already tonight but Milos probably could have stayed in Athens anyway. Dynamo plays against Panellinios tonight at 5.30pm in Athens – what an incident.
