The Sevillian team replaces Lagun Aro San Sebastian, a Spanish team that will not be able to afford to play in both the domestic league and the Eurocup.
After finishing last season at the seventh position in the league, Cajasol couldn’t get a spot for the Eurocup because of Unicaja Malaga’s bad year, which secured a place for the top European competition, despite finishing ninth in Spanish league, thanks to a three year contract with the Euroleague. Now, with the basque team saying no to play next year in Europe, Cajasol will have the chance to play next season again in a competiton in which the team finished as the runner-up in 2011, after losing the final game against Unics Kazan.
This new comes a few days after the closing of its roster with the last addition, the american player Brian Asbury (2’00, 1986). Continuing with this new strategy of signing unknown players, Cajasol adds a young player with experience in Israel, a country where he has always played since he left collegue three years ago.
For the first two years Asbury played in the second division in Israel, being one of the top players in the league. Last year he played for Green Tops Netanya finishing the season with the second best average ranking of the league.
In addition to this, just mention that the players already got the numbers for the next season. Taking a look to the future, Kristaps Porzingis will have his chance to play in the senior team, alongside with young players like Balvin and Burjanadze. Porzingis is considered to be one of the top european prospects to come in the next years, being 2’11 m tall and playing as a small forward. He will surely improve his game thanks to Aito Garcia Reneses, new head coach of the team renowned for his work with young players.
