Šakić napustio Cibonu

Cibona je ostala bez svog najboljeg strelca is prethodne sezone, pošto je Željko Šakić odlučio prihvatiti ponudu rumunjskog prvaka U-Banca Transilvania Cluj-Napoca.

- Došao sam u Cluj zato što se radi o velikom klubu koji iz godine u godinu ima ambiciju osvajati naslove. Nadam se da ćemo naredne sezone doći i do daljnjih faza europskih natjecanja. Želim pomoći momčadi koliko god mogu, te se nadam da ću ispuniti svoje ciljeve u narednoj sezoni – rekao je bivši Vuk za službene stranice svog novog kluba.
