According to "Marca" Real Madrid is very close to concluding a deal which will see Marko Jaric in Madrid. And all this amidst intense rumours that Real Madrid could sign another player too, this time a forward, with Bostjan Nachbar being a possible name.
As it seems Jaric will be returning to Europe after spending the last seven seasons in NBA. Jaric' last team were Memphis Grizzlies but since released by them the Serbian international has been a free agent.
The injury of Llull, the poor performance of Sergi Vidal and the age of Pablo Prigioni made Messina to look in the market for a tall point guard who would be utilised by the Italian coach the same way Teo Papaloukas was used in CSKA Moscow.
