News: Clippers likely to sign Big Sofo

Sofoklis Schortsanitis fled to the USA to negotiate contract terms with the Los Angeles Clippers and most likely to make a move to the NBA. Accounting for that is the fact that the Greek national team centre is being accompanied by his personal trainer to ensure his best physical condition. Moreover, Sofo will also be shown some houses, one of those possibly being his in a very near future.
Selected by the Clippers in the 2003 NBA draft, Schortsanitis was the MVP of last season's Greek All-Star game and had a season of recovery from overweight and shape-wise. In Olympiacos for the last four years, he averaged 7.2 points and 2.5 rebounds in the Euroleague last season. He previously played for Aris, Cantù and Iraklis.

News: McIntyre heading to Málaga

One of the best scorers playing in Europe in heading to Spain next season. Guard Terrell McIntyre is set to sign a two-year deal with Unicaja Málaga worth 1.2 million euros. The 32-year-old American was also being targeted by European giants such as Olympiacos, Real Madrid, Efes Pilsen or Panathinaikos, with the latter deciding not to make a last minute move to acquire the player.
Having played for Siena the last four years, McIntyre quickly established as one of the best players in the Italian league, earning the MVP status two seasons ago. He was also pivotal in Siena's four-peat in the domestic league. In the Euroleague, he averaged 12.5 points, 5.1 assists, 1.9 steals and the same number of rebounds over 16 games last season. Some of his previous clubs include Reggio Emilia, Ferrara, Braunschweig and Gravelines.

News: Aco Petrović to sign for Žalgiris

After sacking Darius Maskoliūnas and handing the helm of the club to players, Žalgiris Kaunas will hire Aco Petrović as their new head coach for one season with another one as option. The 50-year-old Serbian was one of the top names on the table for the Greens, alongside Rimas Kurtinaitis, Stevan Karadžić and Aleksandar Trifunović. The reigning BBL champions have already sent the contract to Petrović, who will sign very soon.
Petrović coached Crvena Zvezda last season for just two months following financial problems. The team then failed to win any competition and lost to rivals Partizan in Serbian league's playoff semi-finals. His previous clubs include FMP Železnik, Hemofarm Vršac, Lokomotiv Rostov (now Kuban) and UNICS Kazan.

News: Vujošević heading to CSKA Moscow (Notícia: Vujošević ruma ao CSKA Moscovo)

In one of the most surprising off-season moves in Europe, CSKA Moscow secured the services of Duško Vujošević. The long-serving Partizan Montenegrin head coach will sign a three-year deal with the reigning Russian champions worth five million euros. The news is even more surprising considering CSKA's previous coach Evgeniy Pashutin was only hired last season and built on the successes of Ettore Messina, claiming the domestic title, the Russian Cup and reaching the Euroleague Final Four, where they ended third. Vujošević will count on an budget intended to hire new players.
Between 2001 and 2010, the 51-year-old "Dule" Vujošević, won nine consecutive Serbian league titles with Partizan, adding four Adriatic League championships, five Serbian Cups and the Korać Cup in 1989 for the Black and Whites. Previously he also coached Granada, Crvena Zvezda, Brescia, Pistoia, Pesaro and Radnički.

(Numa das mais surpreendentes aquisições do defeso europeu, o CSKA Moscovo assegurou a contratação de Duško Vujošević. O técnico montenegrino, há vários anos ao serviço do Partizan, irá assinar um contrato válido por três anos com o actual campeão russo, esperando-se um salário de cinco milhões de euros. A notícia é ainda mais surpreendente, tendo em conta que o anterior técnico do CSKA, Evgeniy Pashutin, foi contratado apenas na época passada, tendo prosseguido os sucessos de Ettore Messina, ao vencer o título nacional, a Taça da Rússia e atingido a Final Four da Euroliga, onde acabou terceiro. Vujošević irá contar com um orçamento destinado à contratação de novos jogadores.
Entre 2001 e 2010, "Dule" Vujošević, de 51 anos, arrecadou nove títulos sérvios consecutivos com o Partizan, vencendo a Liga do Adriático em quatro ocasiões, a Taça da Sérvia por cinco vezes e a Taça Korać, em 1989, ao serviço dos "alvinegros". Anteriormente, orientou o Granada, Crvena Zvezda, Brescia, Pistoia, Pesaro e Radnički.)
