KK Zagreb signed DeMarcus Nelson
For the first time in a season Zagreb CO inked a foreign, American player who should help the team in the outside line which proved not to be strong enough in the last couple on weeks.
»DeMarcus Nelson (193-PG/SG) is our newest acquisition in the outside line, a real combo player who we badly need and who might event player already against Helios if everything will be OK with the registration process and the results of the medical exam,« said the coach Denis Bajramović. Although Zagreb CO sticks to a policy that only domestic players should play for the team and that the accent should be on young talents this season offered a digression in their policy.
