Westermann leaves Barça

The French guard, who came to the club to fill the gap for Thomas Heurtel last season, did not count for Saras. He goes to Monaco.


Barça has already solved the departure of the only piece that remained to be placed in the regrouping that was expected for next season, in which the Catalan team will seek to overcome a bar that it has already set high in the first attempt of the Jasikevicius project. Léo Westermann does not continue despite the fact that his contract contained an option for 2021/22. The point guard, who had been left without a place with the signing of Nico Laprovittola, goes to Monaco, with which he will continue to play the Euroleague when the Principality win one of the places not assigned by license in the maximum European competition.

The point guard was to the liking of Saras, who had had him at Zalgiris, but he has not connected in the same way at Barça and in recent games, nor did he count on him despite Calathes' physical problems. He came from Fenerbahçe, where he left to cover the controversial loss of Thomas Heurtel in winter (now, in Madrid), and is now returning to the league in his country.

Westermann is now 29 years old. This campaign has averaged little with the Catalans, 3.2 points and 2.3 assists in 20 Endesa League games.

The Greek and the Argentine will fill the two main positions in the direction of the game. Rokas Jokubaitis is counted on for the point guard combo, but hoping that an NBA offer won't make him dizzy to pack his bags to the United States if he gets picked in tonight's draft. The other card that remains to be covered is that of the forward after two other dismissals in that position, those of Adam Hanga (Madrid) and Víctor Claver (Valencia) .
