Joshua Shipp (photo) is officially the new member of Anadolu Efes, while Dionte Christmas is waiting for the press release of CSKA Moscow. The Turkish club announced the addition of former Galatasaray forward who was on their sights since the summer.
The negotiations between Efes and Galatasaray were long in order for the two teams to agree in the player’s buyout. That finally happened on Wednesday and Shipp will be reunited with his former Galata coach Oktay Mahmuti who now sits on the bench of Efes.
In Dionte Christmas case, the official team announcement by CSKA Moscow is still missing – the Russian club preferred to give information about the status of injured Zoran Erceg – but the player himself confirmed on twitter: “ I’m Officially a member of CSKA a Top class program can’t wait to land to get to Work #BLESSED “.
A little bit later his tweet was gone, probably because CSKA wants to have the pleasure to announce him on Thursday, but the cat now is definitely out of the bag.
