Split adds Brun and Grant
Although Split didn't lose many players in the post-season, the club had to find replacements for the foreign players. On Wednesday the team is stronger for two newcomers, French power-forward Stephen Brun (2.03-PF) and shooting guard Antonio Grant (SG-1.96) from Siaulai.
Grant averaged 16.1 points and 5.1 rebounds in 10 games of the Uleb Cup last season.
Garnett, Ivanov, Rudež, Mladenov, Sumić and Akins left the team in the recent two months while Siniša Štemberger and Eddie Shannon were added to the list earlier in July. The club plans to sign at least two more players, mostly the Croatian ones which are needed to achieve the quota for the national league games.
