|Barbour signs in Turkey
Today, Antwain Barbour, arguably the best player..
.. of the Spanish LEB1, signed a contract for the rest of the season with the Turkish team Erdemir. Until recently Barbour played for Tenerife where he averaged 18.9 ppg, but due to the global credit crisis (that has hit Spain extra hard due to the collapse of the domestic construction market) the Spanish team could no longer pay Barbour (who was the highest paid player in the LEB 1). Despite interest from several ACB teams, Barbour signed for the Turkish squad. Erdemir came up with the most interesting offer and also was the quickest to take action.
