Bilbao to make changes in the roster

Head coach Fotis Katsikaris is going through a reshuffling of the roster of Bilbao.

Renaldas Seibutis(1.98-SG/SF) has already left Bilbao. The announcement came from the team's official website yesterday. The Lithuanian swingman was released from Olympiakos in 2008 after a season on-loan to Maroussi and signed a 2-season deal with Bilbao. He didn't get much playing time in Bilbao though and the contract was broken with the mutual consent from both parties.

Head coach Fotis Katsikaris spoke to and explained that certain players are leaving Bilbao and others he wants to keep. He said that Jerome Moiso(2.10-C) is one of the players to leave, because despite his great athletic shape he doesn't fit with the chemistry of the team. Moiso averaged 6.6 points and 4.1 rebounds in 31 games in the ACB.

The other player to leave is Damir Markota(2.09-PF). The Croatian power forward averaged 4.3 points and 3.4 rebounds in 34 games in the ACB finding even less playing time than Moiso.
