Ukrainian Artem Pustovyi joined Joventut Badalona for the next season. A veteran of 33 appearances in the BKT EuroCup between Gran Canaria in 2021-22 and Khimik in 2013-14, the 32-year-old center is back in the second tier of Euroleague Basketball. Playing for FC Barcelona from 2018 to 2021, he made his way to 25 games of the Turkish Airlines EuroLeague. On to the next challenge, Pustovyi is teaming up with Miguel Allen, Pep Busquets, Adam Hanga, Yannick Kraag, Pau Ribas, Kassius Robertson, Michael Ruzic, Ante Tomic, Keye van der Vuurst de Vries, and Guillem Vives under the guidance of head coach Dani Miret.

From the G League with the Birmingham Squadron to a stint in Venezuela, 24-year-old Landers Nolley II penned a one-year deal with Aris Midea for his first experience in Europe. His college career ranged from Virginia Tech and Memphis to Cincinnati between 2019 and 2023. Other players confirmed on the 2024-25 roster for the team coached by Giannis Kastritis are Manos Chatzidakis, David DeJulius, Giorgos Gkiouzelis, Nate Laszewski, Lefteris Mantzoukas, and Vassilis Toliopoulos.

After picking up Rasheed Sulaimon and Djordije Jovanovic, Buducnost VOLI welcomed a third new player in the form of Juwan Morgan, securing the services of the 27-year-old forward for the next season. The Indiana product went from one year in the VTB United League to the growing list of EuroCup rookies. Besides the three newcomers, the Podgorica outfit has extended Fletcher Magee, Yogi Ferrell, and McKinley Wright IV.

Returning from consecutive loan assignments over the last two years, 21-year-old Ziga Daneu joined forces with Jaka Blazic, Martinas Geben, Gregor Glas, Brynton Lemar, Aleksej Nikolic, Rok Radovic, and D.J. Stewart at Cedevita Olimpija.
