According to “El Mundo Deportivo” the pressure by Hanga’s side who insisted that he would play only for Barcelona and not for any other team to which he was offered by Baskonia, finally made his current team cave in.
Barcelona is offering a 300.000 euros buyout for the player, Baskonia wants 600.000 euros, however, a deal is near after two days of intense negotiations between the two clubs.
The talks at this point involve just the two clubs because Hanga has already signed his 7,5 million euros contract for the next three years with Baskonia and that’s what he will get from Barcelona. It seems that Baskonia used the right of “tanteo” for the sole purpose of securing a buyout for the player.
