Barça, close to closing its squad with Nigel Hayes

According to Eurohoops, the Barça team will sign the American power forward (26 years old and 2.03 meters), who also works as a forward.


Barça is close to completing its squad for next season… waiting for what Pau Gasol decides. According to Eurohoops, the Barça team is one step away from signing Nigel Hayes. The American (26 years old and 2.03 meters) is a power forward who can function like three in a delicate position after the departures of Víctor Claver (Valencia Basket) and Adam Hanga (Barcelona).

Hayes played the last two seasons for Zalgiris Kaunas, his first under Jasikevicius. This summer he is looking to return to the NBA, where he played 9 games in 2017-18 between the Los Angeles Lakers (two), the Toronto Raptors (two) and the Sacramento Kings (five). Boston Celtics was interested in his services, without actually finalizing his signing.

In the last Euroleague, the North American averaged 9.5 points (44.3% from triple), 3.9 rebounds and 1.2 assists for 9.8 PIR credits. His best game was on matchday 31 against Maccabi Tel Aviv: 24 goals and 30 valuation.

The one from Ohio will become the Barça's fourth signing for next season after the arrival of point guards Rokas Jokubaitis (Zalgiris) and Nicolás Laprovittola (Real Madrid), and center Sertac Sanli (Anadolu Efes) .

The unknown Pau Gasol

In this way, Pau Gasol is the only unknown that still exists within Barça. The 41-year-old Spanish power forward has not yet made a decision on whether to continue for another season in basketball or to retire after winning the Endesa League and participating in the Tokyo Olympics this summer.
