All of them had performance levels that were relatively low last season, but this automatically meant that there was a great capacity for them to grow into a better version of themselves. Which they did. They’ve now become protagonists the results of their teams in the EuroLeague seem inextricably linked to their performances.

Eurohoops presents five players who are synonymous with the word “improvement.”

Is it possible for someone to be the same person but not the same player? It is if that someone is Jalen Reynolds, yes. Last season, we got to know him as a EuroLeague rookie with Maccabi Playtika Tel Aviv. This season, he reintroduced himself in FC Bayern Munich as someone who was always ready. He looks unbeatable in the key and he’s one of the reasons his team is still high in the rankings. He’s ranked 13th in points in the competition and third in rebounds.
