The first big move in the Turkish Airlines EuroLeague coaching carousel is a done deal. According to Eurohoops sources, Zvezdan Mitrovic is moving to Bayern Munich and Frederic Fauthoux is going to replace him at the bench of LDLC ASVEL.

Coach Mitrovic recently denied the rumors about this move however the official announcements on the whole case are expected soon. Mitrovic has a contract until 2021 and he is currently negotiating his compensation with ASVEL.

Fauthoux officially left Metropolitans 92 two days ago, despite also having a contract until 2021. According to the press release of the club: “Freddy told us this week of his desire to leave the club. He wants to give a different follow-up to his career. Even if he is still under contract until 2021, we understand his decision and have reached an agreement with him for a separation at the end of the season. We obviously did not wish to oppose his departure. You can’t keep someone who wants to leave”. 

According to Eurohoops sources, ASVEL has paid a small buy out to Metropolitans 92 for letting Fauthoux leave the club.
