Pinkney and Olimpija parted ways

Union Olimpija reached mutual agreement with US center Kevinn Pinkney about breaking the contract.

Pinkney left good impression in Ljubljana at the start of the season, but in last couple of games he showed less than everyone expected. Due to the fact that both sides were not satisfied, the club and player broke the contract by mutual agreement.

Pinkney was averaging 14.4 points and 4.5 rebounds per game in Euroleague Regular Season, while in Euroleague TOP16 he had an average of 3.2 points in 10 minutes of playing time. In Adriatic League he averaged 10 points and 4 rebounds in 17 minutes of playing time.

Janez Rajgelj, General Manager of Union Olimpija: "We broke the contract by mutual agreement with Kevinn Pinkney today. The wish to break the contract was mutual, that's why the negotiations about breaking the contract were fast and without any problems. We believe we accepted the decision which is good for both sides involved, because in last couple of weeks we didn't see each other on the same track. We would like to thank Kevinn for everything he gave to the club and we wish him all the best in his future basketball career."
