    Thank you.
    Quite remarkable that Bader is a free agent, even more for such a long period of time. He did a good half-season with Hemofarm and played well for Hungarian NT this year. Zvezda ought to acquire Bader and not unknown material from overseas.

    Very interesting. It would be nice to have this kind of updates for Hungarian basketball.

    BTW: I watched Hanga play several times with his club, he really impressed me since the first times (First games I watched him play was 3 years ago, he was only 18), but when I watched him with Hungary he never played well. I'm glad to see he's an impact player now even with his NT.
    Is he going to stay in Albacomp?

    Bam Doyne is another veteran of Hungarian league who impressed me when he played for Falco, he was about to sign here in Italian LegaDue a couple of years ago, but it didn't happen.

    Sorry for Hendlein I didn't know about his injuries, I personally watched him play in a Summer League here in Italy (Jesolo) some years ago. He was among the most interesting players, I thought he was going to get a contract here in LegaDue, but nothing again.

    89-born Adam Hanga and 90-born Dávid Vojvoda are currently the only Hungarian young players who can attract some interest from abroad. Both of them are really talented but maybe they rely too much on shooting threes all the time. Hanga is a great slasher and he has some playmaking skill as well, added to his athleticism so he should use them more often. Now he plays well in the national team but during last season he had some problems with consistency and decision-making mostly because his role in the team wasn't so clear. Vojvoda is a way better outside shooter and it's clear that it's his main weapon but as being a talent in other aspects of a game as well he should develop them too. His decision-making and maturity is above his age level. Hanga is going to stay in Albacomp for the next season. Volvoda left Kaposvár and joined champion ZTE for one season. After next season both of them want to go abroad.

    Hendlein had an offer from LegaDue last year but after his visit in Italy he got injured and couldn't play for months. At the end of last season the Italians contacted him again but nothing happened. He then went to Székesfehérvár to have personal training sessions with his former coach Branislav Dzunic. Some weeks later he signed for Albacomp trained by Dzunic. Then he got seriously injured again, had surgery and will miss up to 6 months. He is a talent but his lack of motivation and injuries can ruin his career.

    Jara Rubin "Bam" Doyne signed for Etoile Charleville-Mezieres (French Second Division).

    PVSK signed American forward Sefton Barrett from Paderborn Baskets.

    Yes, he is a talented guy. Actually, he is a born Hungarian, so he is not neutralized. His father is from Equatorial Guinea, but his mother and grandfather raised him after the father left them and went back to Africa when he was 2.

    Here you can see him playing for his club (Albacomp) against Kloestenburg and Novy Jicin

    Here he plays against Hungarian outfits Hegyvidék and ZTE.

    Péter Lóránt center of national team of Hungary said 'no' to Valladolid and Manresa and stays in Ford Burgos. Lóránt - formerly with Benetton Treviso, Körmend, Antwerp Giants, and Manresa - will start his fifth season at the club. Last season he was second-best scorer (behind Budivelnik-bound Zach Morley) and the team just missed promotion.

    What about Istvan Nemeth? Did he retire from NT?
    He went back to Hungary last season and played for Kormend. Do you know whether he'll stay there or sign elsewhere in Hungary or in a foreign league?

    István Németh was injured so seriously he could play in only ten matches last season. At the first half of the season he seemed healthy so Ferrara signed him. But he failed medical examination, so they released him and signed Valerio Spinelli instead. Later, he returned to Körmend but he had to miss months and could only play some matches in the playoff (7,2 pts, 2,8 rbs, 1,9 ast, 21,9 mins). This summer he had an offer from Poland but he said after he made Körmend waiting for months for him to play a single match he couldn't leave just now, so he would stay. Last news was that he's healthy now.

    Atomerőmű signed power forward Ian Johnson. He came to play in Hungary two years ago to be a player of Atomerőmű. After that season he left for Kecskemét, but now he is back.

    ZTE signed playmaker Lorenzo Williams from LTI Giessen 46ers. They had to find a new point guard after key player Louis Hinnant left to Ukraine.

    Winsome Frazier who played for both Falco and Szolnok last year, left Hungary and will be a player of AZS Koszalin in Poland.

    Players of Körmend who had a contract with the club last season as well, didn't take part in today's training because the haven't got all their payments from 2009-2010.

    Giulio, what are the rules with foreign players?

    Default

    Teams are allowed to use a maximum of three foreigners in a game.

    Rich teams tend to sign more foreign players and decide before every match who is going to play and who isn't.
