Granada announced Aleks Maric
Granada announced the acquisition of australian-croatian center Aleks Maric for the next 2 seasons. Maric will play as an import player as he has not yet acquired a croatian passport but Granada was keen to sign him nevertheless. His name was mentioned in greek media for Aris and Panionios but he preferred the ACB instead.
Maric had a very good year with the Nebraska Comhuskers where he averaged 15.7 points 10.2 rebounds and 1.7 blocks per game in 33 games in the NCAA. Maric tried his luck in several summer leagues but he didn't manage to impress any NBA teams in order to get a contract. His last appeance was at the Vegas Summer League where he averaged 2.3 points and 2.9 rebounds in 7 games.
