27.08.2011 - The Wyoming shooting guard, nicknamed ‘Boom Boom’ for his scoring prowess, was tempted away by a lucrative deal from Real, who failed to win a trophy of any kind last year and are desperate to break Barcelona’s recent domination of the championship. On a more positive note, Gran Canaria hope to have veteran captain Sitapaha Savané back to full fitness soon, after he missed the second half of last season through a ruptured Achilles tendon, and have also persuaded up and coming centre Javi Rey to sign a new three-year contract.
