The departure of Darius Thompson to EFES and the non-renewal of Kurucs and Heidegger leave a small gap in the base position in Vitoria. Furthermore, he has transcended Olympiacos’ interest in Markus Howard, although this operation seems complicated to come together. The name that has come out in the last few hours is that of Colbey Ross, a player who played for Luis Scola’s Varese this year. He is now in the NBA summer league in Las Vegas with the Utah Jazz.
Ross was born in Aurora, Colorado, 24 years ago. She measures 1.85 and weighs 75 kgs. He played from 2017 to 2021 for Malibu’s Pepperdine Waves. (California). In 2021 he was not chosen by any NBA franchise and then Nymburg and Varese ended up. In the Czech Republic he won the league and in Italy he got to know more competitive basketball at the club led from the offices by the historic Luis Scola.
Darius Thompson paid 550,000 euros and bought his freedom to collect at Anadolu EFES. The iconic American player left a great mark on the Buesa Arena, comparable to that of other historic point guards such as Bennett, Larkin, Adams, James or Henry. Regarding the latter, his anti-doping control case with FIBA continues to be stopped sine die. For now he cannot play in any official competition.
Max Heiddeger arrived early in the season from Turkish basketball, He did a neat campaign but didn’t leave enough of a mark to continue. Another player who remains in doubt of continuity is Arturs Kurucs. His contract is up and no offer has been announced. It seems that, as in the case of Giedraitis, if it exists, it will be downward, so there is no agreement at the moment or both have the door open to leave.
