As the new president of Spanish Basketball Federation, Jorge Garbajosa looks intent on following the initial plan by FIBA of imposing certain sanctions to the clubs that have chosen to participate in Eurocup.

In a letter sent by Garbajosa to the Eurocup bound Spanish teams, he warned them that punitive measures will be taken against them for choosing to participate in the competition without the prior permission of the country’s basketball federation.

He then added that he has”ordered the legal services to take immediate action” on the matter and to “report on the disciplinary procedure which the Spanish Basketball Federations can follow on the matter.”

No action has been taken as of now. It remains to be seen if this letter simply serves a warning purpose towards the Spanish clubs that will play in 2016/2017 Eurocup or if it means something much more than that.
