Efes Pilsen did not renew the contracts of three of last season’s players. Mario Kasun, Preston Shumpert and Charles Smith will not continue with the Turkish powerhouse.

Igor Rakocevic, even though rumoured to be leaving also, will probably stay due to the arrival of coach Velimir Perasovic. Same cannot be said about Bostjan Nachbar who’s future is still uncertain.

In the meanwhile Efes Pilsen announced a signing for next season: 29-year old power forward Erwin Dudley, previously of Turk Telekom. Dudley averaged 12.3 points and 6.3 rebounds in last season’s Eurocup. The two parties signed a 1+1 contract. (Efes has the option).
