Cibona inks Sundov, releases Marshall
January 6, 2009
Bruno SundovDespite already qualifying for the Top 16, Cibona Zagreb kept making roster moves on Wednesday in advance of its Group A home game the next night with Unicaja. Cibona announced the signing of center Bruno Sundov to a two-year contract, the release of forward Rawle Marshall and the sale of big man Franko Kastropil to KK Cedevita of the Croatian League. Sundov (221, 28) arrives from ASK Riga of Latvia, where he had been one of the top Eurocup performers so far this season, with 19.5 points and 11 rebounds per game. Sundov had never played for the top team in his native Croatia, having moved from Split to the NBA, where he spent seven seasons between Dallas, Indiana, Boston, Cleveland and New York. His first European stop was as a midseason pickup by Maccabi in 2003-04, when the team won the Euroleague, making Sundov a continental champion. He has since spent two seasons with Alicante of Spain and last season between Limassol of Cyprus and Leon of Spain. He was released by ASK Riga earlier this week despite ranking first among all Eurocup players in rebounds and second in scoring. Marshall, who was Cibona's second-best scorer with 13.1 points on average through eight Euroleague games, left by mutual agreement with the club after he was suspended for two months from playing in the Adriatic League. Kastropil had yet to play in a Euroleague game this season. Sundov was signed through the end of the 2009-10 season, but it was unclear if he would be registered by Cibona in time for Thursday's game.
