Azovmash in financial trouble
Azovmash Mariupol is rumored to be in deep financial trouble and according to media from Slovenia and Ukraine the ukrainian champion has not managed to pay salaries for the past 2 months for quite a few of their players.
Aleksandar Capin and Hasan Rizvic are claiming salaries for 2 months whereas the team was already rumored to be releasing the last top scorer of the Euroleague regular season, Marc Salyers. Rumors are also saying that Thomas Van Der Spiegel will be leaving the ukrainian team to go and play in Spain although the team that will hire him is not yet known. Let's not forget here that Van Der Spiegel has already stood up Valencia this summer when he declined to sign his contract and left for the Ukraine.
