Zoran Planinic at Anadolu Efes

zoran planinic anadolu efes signed
Anadolu Efes signed Croatian point guard Zoran Planinic to a 2 years deal. After having spent lots of money and being unable to reach to F4 in Euroleague previous season, Anadolu Efes board of basketball operations declared to reduce their budget up to %40 prior to the upcoming season. However, such payroll cut seems to have affected their transfer strategy in rather positive manner.

The club released expensive players such as Jordan Farmar ( and possibly Sascha Vujacic as well ) and chased relatively lower profile names. Planinic, on the other hand, is an absolute boost for Anadolu Efes rotation. Zoran Planinic spent last season playing for BC Khimki Moscow region where he recorded 11.4 ppg, 6.3 apg and 1.1 spg in THY Euroleague. He's a tall point guard who can create serious mismatch on behalf of Anadolu Efes in the point guard position.

His arrival could also help his countryman Stanko Barac to increase his efficiency.
