    News, news, news ....

    A new headcoach of Anwil Wloclawek, Zmago Sagadin , made his first two decisions. Thanking both players for their contribution in pevious club's results, Anwil will not offer an extension of the contracts to Zbigniew Bialek (203-F-82) and Wiktor Grudzinski (208-C-78).
    Bialek has been bound with Anwil since 2006, when he joined the team after the one-year break caused by the injury. Amazing fans, he played very well (7.8 ppg. and 4.3 rpg.). At the beginning of the last season he had got next injury again. After so long recovery he didn't fulfill the expectations. When it comes to Grudzinski, his two and a half seasons, were on the same level. His averages 3.2 ppg., 4.2 rpg. in 06/07 and 2.6 ppg. and 3.0 rpg. last time never showed his bravery and sacrifice.

    Pawel Leonczyk (202-F-86, agency: Promotex) leaves Polpharma Starogard Gdanski and moves to Energa Czarni Slupsk. 22-year-old power forward / center has been a member of Polpharma for two seasons. Last time he was averaging about 6 ppg. and 3 rpg. Leonczyk is the third Czarni's signing after Lukasz Ratajczak (201-F-86) from Polpak and Ukrainian coach Andrei Podkovyrov . It has to be said that Leonczyk was someone desirable in the current transfer market, especially in the face of the order of a junior player (born in 1986 or later) competing throughout the whole second quarter.

    According to the newspaper 'Przeglad Sportowy' Krzysztof Szubarga (184-G-84) is very close to be hired by Atlas Stal Ostrow Wielkopolski. The board of the club is going to offer him a one-year deal. Last season Polish playmaker was a representative of SPEC Polonia Warsaw where he was averaging 10.1 ppg. and 4.0 apg. Moreover Atlas is interested in signing Kristijan Ercegovic (208-C-76, agency: VTBM/SRBM), Croatian center from Victoria Gornik Walbrzych (9.7 ppg. and 6.6 rpg. last time).

    There are high chances that Wojciech Kaminski will be a headcoach of the club SPEC Polonia Warsaw again. Kaminski is one of the best Polish young coaches. He is strongly bound with the team from Warsaw where he has been coaching since 2002 with only one period break. In the middle of the 2005/2006 season he moved to Turow Zgorzelec, but he spent over there only a half-a-year.
    Besides, the roster of the team includes only three junior players at the moment: Kamil Laczynski (177-G-89), Wojciech Pisarczyk (201-F-88) and Marcin Nowakowski (184-G-89).
    Bartosz Sarzalo (197-G-83) leaves the team for sure - he signed a deal with Zastal Zielona Gora (Polish A2 Division)

    Znicz Jaroslaw started building their roster. Marek Miszczuk (212-C/F-77, agency: Promotex) and Tomasz Celej (198-F/G-78, agency: Promotex) are two players who have valid contracts with the team so their future is sure. Obviously, the team will be coach by Stanislaw Gierczak . According to www.polskikosz.pl Bartosz Krupa (180-G-80) also signed the contract, however there is no confirmation from the club. Morevoer the board of the team is interested in extending the deals with Marcin Ecka (184-G-78), Tomasz Fortuna (186-G-81) and Artur Mikolajko (197-F-79).
    Michal Sikora (182-G-80), Maciej Miller (202-F/C-77) and Jakub Dryjanski (201-F-82) will leave the team.

    Basket Kwidzyn have a new coach. It will be Adam Prabucki who moves from Polpharma Starogard Gdanski. Prabucki coached that team last season but he didn't aviod relegating. It is worth adding that Prabucki coached Polpharma only from the middle of the season. Before that he had been a headcoach of women team Energa Torun.

    I hope for you that this dude will be a bench warmer and nothing else because he's a 2.10m tall who can't rebound, play hard and scoring like even the weakest 7 footer would do for sure. Maybe then he'll have a little part of the success which another former Italian Lega2 player (David Logan aka 07-08 mvp, fired by Pavia during 05-06) had here in Poland but it would mean that the league is trash compared with low European standards...

    Prokom will have to say good bye to Milan Gurovic (207-F-75)
    Does anyone know if it's true or if it's just a rumor?

    The fact is that they don't have enough money not only for him but also for a lot of players (I've read also Shakur, Stanojevic, Kisner and others I don't remember). http://www.eurobasket.com/SRB/SRB.asp

    No, I don't want that this miracle happens! Much better if he chooses to sign for Cant¨ or Memphis but the truth is that he'll probably give up to Greek Euros...

    Really? During his last season in Red Star he said he didn't wanted to play for big teams, and he mentioned Olympiakos to make an example, where he would "play 5 minutes per game". If he'll end to play for Piraeus he would show he hasn't clear ideas of what he wants (or he just thinks about money even at 33) also after leaving Red Star for Prokom when he said he would have left Belgrade only if a top team searched him.

    Donald Copeland (PG, ex-Polpharma) is very close to sign with Turow Zgorzelec.

    So Prokom doesn't have enough money and immediately they sign a player like Logan? I don't know what is his salary but I think they had to pay a quite expensive buyout or am I wrong? Prokom official site then reports that they resigned also Dylewicz and they are trying to resign Roszyk, but in particular there is a comunicate which reports that the news about their financial problems are false because they come from media and not from the club.

    True is that they will have 50% less money in last year ... just look that Prokom sign only Polish players - Dylewicz, Szczotka, Roszyk, they talk with Hyzy ... they can have and must have also star in team, so they but Logan who has great season. There is any word about Gurovic ... nobody talk about him, think about him ... I think that his agent looking for new team for Milan.

    In your opinion Logan will be the player who'll have to replace Gurovic and/or Slanina, right? On PLK site there is an article where they say Prokom budget now is one third of last season's one. I've also read about the acquisitions of these Polish players but isn't Dylewicz that expensive who was going to Anwil or Turow because of the same reason which is bringing Gurovic far from Sopot?

    Just look, If Gurovic didnt stay in team (he have still contract, but want more moneys) Prokom must pay him money for cut his contract. They buy Logan, they also have Dylewicz - who talk with Anwil and Turow, but now he have carrer high level and maybe he want show in Euroleagu. Press write that Logan have offers from Ukraine , Russia, Spain and Italy but maybe there is a one reason - Euroleague, and he know that in Sopot (where team leav Slanina and Gurovic) he can be a star and he can show his bball in Euroleage

    I really dont know what will be with Gurovic, I will talk with some peoples and give You info man

    Z zagranicznych graczy z minionego sezonu żaden nie zostanie w Sopocie.
    So, all foreign players from last season will NOT stay in Sopot for this year...

    Thanks a lot! That means next season all teams will have some more chances to stop Prokom's "dinasty"

    I hope so, I hope that my team Anwil

    After signing David Logan (184-G-82, college: Indianapolis), Prokom Trefl Sopot is negotiating with Thomas Kelati (195-G/F-82, college: Washington St.) another star of PGE Turow. Kelati was the key player of Saso Filipovski's tactics. He was scoring 15.2 ppg., 3.0 rpg. and 2.0 apg. in Polish League and 14.8 ppg., 3.2 rpg. and 1.9 apg. in ULEB Cup.
