After the removal of the Russian teams from the European factories, today comes another significant step regarding the basketball clubs.
The US Embassy in Moscow ordered American citizens in Russia to leave the country following the sweeping conscription order issued by President Putin.
It is about 45 American players who are signed and play in the VTB league and the Russian league (Super League).
The most prominent names are Trey Thompkins from Zenit St. Petersburg to which he came from Real Madrid, Jaylen Reynolds who moved from Maccabi Tel Aviv to Kazan, and Daryl Macon who also came from Panathinaikos to Kazan.
