Following 335 NBA games, Nik Stauskas moved to EuroLeague and KIROLBET Baskonia last summer. He admittedly did not know what to expect, but a few months in his European career has spotted significant differences between the way of play in the Old Continent and the NBA. “The games here are very competitive” he said talking to gathered journalists ahead of the EuroLeague Regular Season Round 8 home match versus Maccabi FOX Tel Aviv, “I feel the defense here is a lot better.”
KIROLBET Baskonia picked up Nik Stauskas ahead of the 2019-20 edition of EuroLeague, the Spanish team announced on Thursday. The 25-year-old Canadian guard is set to introduce himself to the fans of Europe’s premier competition.
For the first time in his career, Darrun Hilliard will play in the Turkish Airlines EuroLeague competition for Baskonia Vitoria Gasteiz. As Eurohoops had reported, the two sides were near a deal on Sunday night, and on Monday it has been made official that the 25-year old American guard will play for the Spanish team.
