European basketball veteran Travis Best(1.81-PG) started last year in Prokom Trefl but financial problems of the team lead him away and back to Virtus where he played for 18 games averaging 12.7 points 2.7 rebounds and 3.3 assists.
Nana Mensah-Bonsu(2.05-PF) also played in the italian league last year for Benetton Trevizo. The dynamic power-forward played for 33 games in Benetton averaging 9.2 points 9 rebounds and 1.1 blocks. He also played for 1 game for Granada scoring 22 points 9 rebounds and 3 blocks. Bonsu is currently training with the Dallas Mavericks that released him last year as a free agent.
