Cibona released Branimir Longin

Branimir Longin (196-SG/SF) is no longer a member of Croatian Euroleague participant and Adriatic league finalist - Cibona Zagreb. Longin appeared just 10 times in the regional championship this season averaging 2.7 ppg. In Euroleague he played only two games. It was clear that coach Perasovic does not count on experienced guard and this decision was expected. Yesterday the team from Zagreb officially terminated the contract with Longin. 

Branimir Longin arrived to Cibona this summer from German Oldenburg. He played 42 games in 1. Bundesleague registering 11.3 ppg and 3.1 rpg. Before Oldenburg, he spent two years with Caja San Fernando Sevilla. On season 04/05 he reached the final in Croatian championship with Cibona. He also was Cibona's member from 2000 to 2002. Meanwhile he spent two years with Zadar. Longin won 2 titles of Croatian A1 and 3 trophies in Croatian National Cup. In 2006 he was called to join NT.  Cibona currently has 5-1 record in A1 league.
