Dixon out, Rakocevic in?

While Juan Dixon's contract is suspended, Malaga are eyeing the Serbian star.

Juan Dixon(1.91-SG)'s contract is suspended until further notice due a positive drug test of the player during his stay in Greece. Dixon was playing for Aris Thessaloniki at the time when he submitted the sample and although it was submitted in the beginning of November it only surfaced recently.

Hence Malaga need a replacement scorer in their backcourt because Omar Cook can only do so much. At the moment they're keeping their eyes on Igor Rakocevic according to, awaiting the possible dissolution of his contract with Efes Pilsen. Rakocevic was one of the stars that Efes Pilsen signed during the summer but his relationship with head coach Ergin Ataman reached boiling point after a heated confrontation during a Euroleague game. On the other hand Rakocevic played for 20 minutes during the Turkish league game against Fenerbahce. If this takes too long or Rakocevic stays in Efes Pilsen they might turn their attention elsewhere.
