Ersan Ilyasova joins Barcelona for a record wage

Recommended Posts

Milwaukee Bucks forward Ersan Ilyasova opted out of his contract to join one of the perennial Euroleague favourites FC Winthertur Barcelona for two years worth €3.5M a year, although some Turkish sources state that it is €2.5M, the player's agent said today. :huh:

This wage according to the player's agent makes him the top earner in European basketball history. :o

After the possible departure of Juan Carlos Navarro to the Washington Wizards, FCB were looking for a replacement (Antonio Granger, Rudy Fernandez and Marcus Brown were the actual favourites to sign) even though Ilyasova was never among the favourites. <_<

I honestly hope it's not a decision that this flamboyant and rangeful forward will regret in the future.. :blink:

Papaloukas extended his deal with CSKA Moscow by making 3 million euros a year for three years. That would make him the highest paid player based on a combination of money and length of contract...
