Premiership basketball side Gran Canaria’s fears of losing star player Jaycee Carroll to Real Madrid were duly confirmed in the summer and they will have to get used to life without the league’s top points scorer for the past two years.
Gran Canaria’s top scorer has signed for Real Madrid 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.
