Cibona have signed veteran Croatian star Gordan Giricek, who could make his debut against Partizan in a a few days.

Giricek signed a contract until the end of season. The 33 year old is returning to Cibona after nine years. He was a “Ciboci” form 1993 to 2001 in the start of his career, before moving to CSKA Moscow and later on making the jump to NBA.

The signing was made possible after a new administration, led by the City of Zagreb, took over the club. Their aim is to liquidate a percentage of the commercial holdings Cibona owns around the arena and with that money repay old debts and reinforce the squad qith quality signings.
