Marc Salyers between Moscow and Ankara
Marc Salyers(2.06-PF) is the definition of the scorer as he can score from any distance against any team. Unfortunately for him his defensive abilities are not up to par with his offensive skills and so the elite euroleague teams are reluctant to sign him. That does not mean though he will have a hard time finding a contract in Europe.
The leading scorer of the Euroleague regular season averaged 21.8 points 6.6 rebounds and 1.1 assists per game in 14 games for Chorale Roanne. At the moment Turk Telekom Ankara and Dynamo Moscow have both made a bid for the dynamic power forward and remains to be seen in which team will Salyers end up.
Salyers stated in an interview according to championat.ru that he would like to play under the coaching of David Blatt after his last game on Sunday. He also said that he is currently negotiating with Turk Telekom and that he still hasn't decided anything yet.
