Alex Tyus could’ve joined Real Madrid even prior to the start of the season.

Real Madrid center Alex Tyus said that the Spanish powerhouse had contacted his side about him before the beginning of the season. The situation didn’t advance past talks then since – according to the veteran center – Real was also exploring options in other positions in light of Facu Campazzo’s departure for the NBA.

Tyus eventually signed with Real this January and after forward Anthony Randolph’s season-ending injury.

Per Walla:

“They were talking to my agent a lot in August and September, but they were also looking at other things with Campazzo going to the NBA.

So I knew that if I signed with a Euroleague team I would not have been able to leave, so Galatasaray gave me the opportunity to play for them for a couple of months”

So I could help them and also stay in shape, after all that happened last season with the pandemic.”
