Mario Delas on loan to Cibona

A good chance for Delas to play at Euroleague level.

The deal was announced by the official website of Cibona Zagreb and it says that Mario Delas(2.07-PF) will be playing for them next season. The youngster comes from Zalgiris Kaunas that acquired his rights from KK Split in January of this year. Delas started the season in KK Split but he has been playing for Zalgiris since January in the Baltic League, the Euroleague and the LKL. After that season Delas will have 2 more seasons in his contract with Zalgiris.

He got lots of playing time in the LKL averaging 6.9 points and 4.4 rebounds in 20 games in the LKL but playing for Cibona allows him to play in the Adriatic League and the Euroleague. Cibona on the other hand, in the midst of financial trouble will have the captain of the Croatian U-21 team to complement their frontline with the fraction of the cost. They are still looking for a point guard and a combo guard to complete their roster. They have given a deadline to an offer they made to Rok Stipcevic and the combo guard will come the American market.
