  • Euroleague Another 'deadly' escape for Real Madrid: Gabriel Deck sets an imminent course for the NBA

Real Madrid is already clear about who is chosen after the departure of Gabriel Deck.

The white team would have taken advantage of the NBA's discard market to tie Vincent Poirier (2.13 meters), a former Baskonia player who would return to the Endesa League after two unsuccessful seasons in the North American league.

It is not a patch but a movement for the future: the French international signs for the remainder of the season and three more.

Poirier will not be able to play in the Euroleague playoffs, which closed the registration period on February 24, but he will be able to play in the Endesa League, where he will be able to give

Edy Tavares

a break.


The Cape Verdean already exceeds 1,500 minutes this year, beating any Real Madrid player by more than 300.

It is a relief of maximum guarantee ... And an insurance in case the NBA also sets its eyes on repechating the white pivot (he has a contract until 2024).

Because despite the growth of Tavares in the readings, the radius of action of both overlaps.

Poirier (Clamart, 1993) is a rocky center, with a great defensive presence and powerful in the attack paint.

Territories where Cape Verdean also dominates.

Pablo Laso

will have to spin very fine with the rotations to combine two European elite centers.

Unsuccessful in the NBA

Poirier returns to Europe after an unsuccessful year and a half in the NBA.

He packed his bags in 2019 after an outstanding second season at Baskonia, where he finished as top rebounder and chosen in the Euroleague Second Best Five.

But he failed to gain a foothold in the

Boston Celtics

, where he only played 22 games out of 72.

During the preseason he was transferred first to the

Oklahoma City Thunder

, where he did not make his debut, and then to the

Philadelphia 76ers

, where he barely played 10 games, 39 minutes in total.

Two weeks ago he was again posted to the New York Knicks, but with the unspoken agreement to release him.

With the NBA door closed, he returned to Europe, where he said goodbye as one of the best centers on the continent.
