Most leagues around Europe are now resting up and enjoying time with their loved ones, and there are some who are already preparing for next season, as you will read below.
Kinsey drawing interest?
Partizan Belgrade’s Tarence Kinsey has now recovered from his ankle injury and is working out back home in the States.
Serbian media reports that Kinsey, who averaged 14.8 points a game last season in the Euroleague is likely to leave Partizan after a disappointing season that saw them unable to qualify to the Adriatic League Finals and put their qualification for next season’s Euroleague in jeopardy.
Though not confirmed exactly which Euroleague teams are interested in him, Kinsey is likely to play in Europe’s top competition next season.
