Barcelona announced Joe Ingles for 2 seasons

Now it's official.

Barcelona announced via their official website the signing of Australian forward Joe Ingles(2.03-SG/SF/PF). Ingles is effectively leaving CB Granada in a very difficult position as he is the best player of the team but Barcelona have paid 450,000 euros for his transfer. On the other hand Granada are close to the relegation zone in the ACB at the moment and the future doesn't look any brighter.

Ingles will be replacing the injured Gianluca Basile and his British passport makes him a valuable commodity. So far he has averaged 13.3 points 4.7 rebounds and 3.9 assists in 7 games in the ACB for Granada. He is the second Australian to join Barcelona after David Andersen(2.11-PF/C) who is now playing in the NBA.
