There are only a few hours to go until the first jump ball of the 20th EuroLeague season in its current format, and the 18 participating teams have made their moves in terms of staffing their rosters.

Eurohoops presents the Top 10 of those signings, in what might be the most interesting transfer market period in recent years in the competition.

Big players decided either to change sides within the competition or to leave the NBA and the opportunity for big contracts in order to play in Europe’s top club competition. For a hefty fee, of course, but at any rate, when basketball players with a very good run in the NBA and at an ideal age in their career leave the USA in order to take part in the EuroLeague, that’s newsworthy. Some have left the best basketball league in the world for the first time and others have returned to the old continent after a long presence in the USA.

The champions of the summer transfer period are without a doubt Barcelona, who strengthened their roster amazingly well, though several other teams did the same, most of them improving the quality of their manpower, something they will still have to prove on the court as well.

Eurohoops picked out the Top 10 signings of the summer in the competition and presents them here in random order. As you can understand, it took us a while to come up with the Top 10, since the excellent moves that were made by the clubs were far more!

This is why players like Nik Stauskas (KIROLBET Baskonia), Quincy Acy (Maccabi FOX Tel Aviv), Brandon Davies (Barcelona), Kostas Koufos (CSKA Moscow), Cory Higgins (Barcelona) and Alex Abrines (Barcelona) didn’t make our final choices.
