While Fenerbahce Beko, who agreed with Dimitris Itoudis for the head coaching task, had successive separations, a flash development took place in Jan Vesely, the star name of the team. It was claimed that Barcelona, which finished the Final Four in the 3rd place in Turkish Airlines EuroLeague and lost the championship in its own league to Real Madrid, is very close to adding the Czech center to its squad within the scope of its new squad structure.

According to the news in Mundo Depotivo, after the disappointment of the last season, Barcelona took action for a new squad structure. The Catalan team, which wants to remain competitive by spending less money due to economic restrictions, is very close to recruiting Jan Vesely.
According to the details of the news, which shows the Czech basketball player among the “best centers of the last 10 years in Europe”, Vesely will sign for Barcelona with a salary less than he earned in the Yellow-Navy Blue team.
Brandon Davies to replace
It was also stated that Barcelona will fill the center gap created by the decision of Brandon Davies, whose head coach Sarunas Jasikevicius wants to extend his contract, to leave the team despite all offers, with Jan Vesely. It is also reported that the inclusion of Czech basketball player Tomas Satoransky in the team was influential in Vesely’s decision.
Architect of the EuroLeague championship
Vesely, who joined Fenerbahçe in 2014 after his NBA career, has been among the indispensables of the Yellow-Navy Blue team for many years. Vesely, one of the fans’ favorite names in the team, was also among the architects of the EuroLeague championship that Fenerbahçe won in 2017.
The 32-year-old Czech basketball player averaged 13.6 points, 6.1 rebounds and 2.5 assists in the EuroLeague this season.
