Cedevita will continue the season without the American Kevin Murphy, with whom they have terminated their contract on mutual consent.

Head coach Jure Zdovc commented on the decision: “It has been my decision, since Murphy did not meet my criteria. He was also unsatisfied. We have enough of players. Nichols will play at the forward position and there are also Perković and Bajo, who can spend couple of minutes on court and raise the energy of the team. So I do not see any problems there. This can additionally strengthen our ranks and we will move on. Murphy was outside the system both on defense and offense. We have tried to hide this, but in certain big games this is impossible.”

Murphy averaged 8.3 points, 1.7 rebounds and 1 assist per game this season in the ABA League.

Cedevita raskinula suradnju s Murphyjem

Kevin Murphy neće nastaviti sezonu u redovima Cedevite. Klub je s igračem sporazumno raskinuo ugovor.

Cedevita će u nastavak sezone krenuti bez Amerikanca Kevina Murphyja, s kojim je postigla sporazumni raskid ugovora.

Na odlazak Kevina Murphyja se osvrnuo trener Jure Zdovc: "To je bila moja želja jer Murphy nije zadovoljio moje kriterije. On je isto bio nezadovoljan. Imamo dosta igrača. Nichols ide na tri, a tu su i Perković i Bajo koji mogu odigrati par minuta da dignu energiju. Tako da ja tu ne vidim nikakvih problema. To nas čak može dodatno skupiti i idemo dalje. Murphy je bio van sistema u obrani i u napadu. To smo mi probali malo zakamuflirati, ali kod nekih pravih utakmica to jednostavno ne ide."

Murphy je u ovoj sezoni u ABA ligi prosječno bilježio 8,3 poena, 1.7 skoka te 1 dodavanje po utakmici.
