Valencia interested in signing Joe Ingles
According to superdeporte.es, Valencia found another Australian to sign and this time it's Joe Ingles (2.03-SF/PF) the young forward of GB Granada. Ingles is also the owner of a British passport so that allows him to play as an EU player and he has been a member of the Australian National Team. Ingles can cover both forward positions so that will help Valencia in covering the SF position as well, now that Kelati is sure to move to another team.
The only thing that stands in the way is a counter-offer by Granada. Granada have the right of first refusal, that means they can match an offer from Valencia within 10 days. In his first season in the ACB, Ingles averaged 11 points 4.1 rebounds and 2.1 assists. He took part in the Las Vegas Summer League of 2009 playing for the Golden State Warriors team and he averaged 3.2 points and 4.2 rebounds in 5 games.
