The merengue team could become the third European quintet to include the Congolese power forward, who is currently without a club after terminating his contract with the Milwaukee Bucks.
Real Madrid Basketball has had the Congolese player on their agenda for a long time Serge Ibakaand now that he is free there is illusion. After several negotiations between the basketball player’s agent and the directives of the Wisconsin quintet, they decided to end the professional relationship. Now without a team, the player does not rule out the idea of leaving the team NBA.
This is the opportunity that Real Madrid Basketball has been waiting for and the sporting directors have not hesitated to get in touch with Ibaka. However, there is one hurdle preventing a quick agreement between the Madridista squad and the Congolese side. And it is the presence of another great pivot that, if left, would free up the post for the arrival of former club Bàsquet L’Hospitalet.
In short: if Tavares leaves Real Madrid, Ibaka will replace him
Walter Samuel Tavares da Veiga, better known as Edy Tavares, is one of Real Madrid’s standout players during his stay at the Palacio de los Deportes WiZink Center. In recent years he has been a multiple MVP and won several titles, including the ACB League, the Euroleague, the Copa del Rey and the Spanish Supercup.
Although the Cape Verdean already played in the NBA from 2015 to 2017, the doors of the American tournament could be opened again. And it so happens that several Portland Trail Blazers spokespersons are currently trying to get in touch with the Tavares representative. Should there be an agreement to return to the best basketball league in the world, Ibaka would be his successor.
Ibaka’s words that bring him closer to Real Madrid
Every elite basketball player wants to continue and if possible finish their career in the NBA. But some players understand that there are moments in their sports career when it is more important to feel good. Such is the case of the Congolese center, for whom his emotional well-being is a top priority, regardless of whether he has to leave the American Championship.
“My mentality is the same as always. I want to find an opportunity to go somewhere where I can contribute, have fun, and be happy. That’s what I have in mind now. There was a time when I couldn’t take it anymore. I love this game, but if it affects my peace of mind and happiness, it’s not worth it,” commented Serge Ibaka, who wants to become a new Real Madrid player.
