Gran Canaria announced that the club terminated the contract of head coach Salva Maldonado. Assistant Victor Gracia will act as interim head coach.
Maldonado becomes the third head coach of a EuroLeague team to be fired this season following Pedro Martinez (Baskonia) and Neven Spahija (Maccabi Tel Aviv). While Gran Canaria has a 3-7 record in their first-time EuroLeague campaign, their real struggles are in ACB where the team is 3-7, one win above the relegation zone.
Gran Canaria signed Maldonado on summer for his second stint with the team after the one in 2005-2009.
