Datoma. Returns to boot country after seven years
Luigi Datoma leaves Penerbahcha. The Italian forward officially confirmed his contract at the Turkish club on Tuesday, taking advantage of the exit clause he had. "I gave a lot to the club, but I got a lot more," Datoma wrote in his farewell letter. The 32-year-old's next stop is Milan, where he will sign for 3 years.
Datuma leaves Penerbakhce after five seasons (won with the Euroleague team in 2017) and returns to play in his homeland after seven years. His last team in Italy was Rome, and is now part of Milan's massive acquisition campaign - which also included Malcolm Delaney, Kyle Haines and Kevin Panter - which is unlikely to end.
Also, today's signature has been very significant in European basketball: Alexei Shebed continues in Moscow slime. After five seasons at the Russian Guard club, his contract is extended for another three years. 31-year-old Scheved was the Deputy King of the Euroleague this season until the season ended with 21.4 points and third assists with 6.2.
