The 15 Euroleague signings in 2021: Tyus, Hezonja, Gasol ...

The continental competition closed the option of registering new players on February 24, but several reinforcements could make their debut this day in the Euroleague.


There will be no more transfers this season in the Euroleague. On Wednesday 24, at 6:00 p.m., the option to register new players for this season was closed, yes, the signings could not have played the competition this season with another team, since the deadline, in that case, had expired long before (January 6). Thomas Heurtel, for example, made a commitment to Asvel Villeurbanne on Wednesday, but he will not be able to be in the Euroleague, since the point guard started the course at Barça.

Another, whose transfer did come on time, was Leo Westermann. The French base was chosen to replace his compatriot Thomas Heurtel at Barça and the Barça club and Zalgiris reached an agreement on the same day as the market close, on January 6. A day before, Real Madrid made the arrival of Alex Tyus official as a replacement for Anthony Randolph, although, in this case, the deadline did not expire on January 6 because Tyus was arriving from Galatasaray, which disputes the FIBA Champions League.Some NBA discards are coming

On January 13, Anadolu Efes announced the signing of Dzanan Musa, who could not find his place in the NBA. The Bosnian forward, who turns 22 in May, was chosen by the Nets in the 2018 draft (29th place). He came to the New York franchise, but left after two seasons in which he played 54 games in total (five in the playoffs). In November, his rights fell to the Pistons, but Detroit didn't have him. For now, he has not had many minutes at Efes either (8 in total) .

Kyle Brandon O`Quinn is having his first experience outside the United States. After playing for the Magic, Knicks, Pacers and Sixers, Fenerbahçe convinced him in January (signed on the 20th of that month) to try European basketball. And this course has also debuted Anton Ponkrashov, who got engaged at the beginning of February with a Khimki in financial and sporting difficulties.

The one who has yet to make his debut is Tarik Black, who signed with Zenit St. Petersburg on January 14, but has not had minutes yet. Neither does TJ Cline, Maccabi's new forward, who has played a game in the Israeli Super League. CSKA moved quickly after Milutinov's injury and signed Michael Eric, a former Baskonia player, who was in Turkey (Turk Telekom Ankara). The center signed on February 10, but the Moscow team still have not played since then, because their duel against Panathinaikos was postponed. Eric is not the only reinforcement of CSKA before the market closes, since days later (February 15), he reached an agreement with the Danish Iffe Lundberg, from Zielona Gora.

Another signing that arrives this February due to an injury is that of Jeremy Evans, who will replace Zach LeDay at Armani Milan. Also Kosta Koufos, without a team after playing last season at CSKA, and who will replace Hassan Martin at Olympiacos.

Mario Hezonja, cut by the Grizzlies in December, arrives at Panathinaikos (Barça will retain their rights next season) and at Bayern German David Kraemer lands in the NBA Development League and will make his Euroleague debut. The giant Christ Koymadje (2.23) will also be premiered, who has committed to Alba Berlin after testing at the Movistar Estudiantes.

And without forgetting Pau Gasol. Barça announced his return on Monday the 22nd and although it is not yet known when he will join the team, Gasol could play a European game again 20 years after the last time.
