Unicaja are thought to be primed and ready to sign Great Britain big man Joel Freeland (208-F-87) at the end of the month. Freeland has enjoyed a superb season at Gran Canaria but his contract expires at the end of the month and it is expected that Unicaja will wrap up a multi-season deal for the 22 year old.
The center was voted in the top five revelations of the season in the ACB andformer Spanish National team boss Coach Aito Reneses has had plenty of time to assess his potential with both respective teams having faced each other in the play-off quarter finals and the Copa Del Rey, as well as the regular season. Freeland enjoyed a brilliant EuroBasket qualifying campaign with Great Britain last summer and took that form into the ACB season and bar a frustrating foot injury, the Trailblazer draft has enjoyed a breakthrough season.
