Vujcic: "We want to add a point guard that will add quality"

After significant injuries to John DiBartolomeo and Nate Wolters that occurred during the game against Bayern Munich, Maccabi Fox Tel Aviv comes into the contest against CSKA Moscow short-handed as the team looks to reinforce the roster. The Yellow & Blue's sport director Nikola Vujcic spoke with reporters about the status of the injured players and the clubs effort to bolster the team.

"John (DiBartolomeo) went through surgery, everything went well as we look forward to his recovery", Said Nikola Vujcic, about the captain who injured his chest against the German squad. "We stand by John D, support him in this process as we will follow up once in a while during his recovery. It's going to be a long one, so we wish him all the best, and hopefully, he will come back as soon as possible". 

Vujcic was asked about the rumors about the addition of Tyler Ennis and Alex Perez: "You are right about most of these names that were published, we are evaluating the market and trying to find the best possible player for this team. I believe we have an amazing group of guys that became a great team, and we want to add somebody that will be compatible with them and help to play at the level that we've been playing". 

"It isn't easy to find a point guard during the summer, so it's especially harder now in December", Clarified the Croatian sport director. "Generally, the market has been weak in the past couple of months because of the amount of leagues and different competitions. We won't just bring someone, we want a player that will be a great person for our locker room and someone who will give us quality. We have an amazing group of guys that are fighting together and getting great results. Statistically, they are doing amazing things in the EuroLeague".

Coach Giannis Sfairopoulos also addressed the issue in the press conference towards CSKA Moscow: "We are in the market, and we try to do the best for Maccabi. We have full support from our ownership group, and they are willing to add to the budget because of the bad luck we got with these injuries. With that, it isn't easy to find players during the season because most of them have contracts, and teams don't want to release players. Tyler Ennis is a name that is rumored around the team, but he wants to stay in the U.S to try and get a contract in the NBA. We don't want to make a move just to bring a player".
