In the past American players were seen as the saviors of their teams in Europe. They were expected to lead, to be the best players of the roster and make a difference. Times have changed, the level of European talent is much higher than it used to be, but some things are still the same.
Americans in most cases are expected to make a difference, their signing can make or break the season of team and they are still some of the best paid players of Euroleague. So it’s again this time of the year. Eurohoops presents you the Top10 Euroleague free agents from the States, which are expected to be on the radar of the top clubs around the old continent.
In this list we didn’t include players who may be released by their teams this summer, or those who may leave their teams because of financial reasons – that may be the case with Unics Kazan – but only those who are free agents, or have an opt out clause in their contract which they can use. We also have to give a honorable mention to those who were cut from the list, but are also going to be big names in the summer market. Those are Anthony Radolph, Samardo Samuels, Alex Renfroe, Tarense Kinsey, KC Rivers, Mike James and Reggie Redding. And now let’s start with the Top10.
