Roma close to Jurica Golemac

According to greek media that was also quoted by Corriere dello Sport, Jurica Golemac(2.09-PF/C) is close to signing with Virtus Roma for the play-offs. The croatian-slovenian power forward/center was the cornerstone for the team of Panellinios in Greece and now that they have kicked out of the playoffs by Maroussi with 2-0, Golemac is looking to sign another contract until the summer.

Golemac will be arriving to Rome this evening in order to make it for Sunday's game against Cantu for the last of the regular season in Italy. Golemac is known as a power forward with a high basketball IQ and great passing ability. This season he averaged 10.8 points 5.4 rebounds and 2.9 assists in 25 games of the regular season and play-offs in the greek A1 league. For the Eurocup he averaged 8.4 points 2.5 rebounds and 1.8 assists in 8 games.
