FC Barcelona reached a new agreement with power forward Pierre Oriola to keep working together for four more years, until the end of the 2023-24 season, the club announced Tuesday. Oriola (2.08 meters, 27 years old) averaged 3.8 points and 2.1 rebounds in 28 Turkish Airlines EuroLeague games last season, his third with Barcelona, to which he has helped consecutive Spanish Copa del Rey titles in 2018 and 2019.
