Ibon Navarro and Juanma Rodríguez have already drawn up the list of homegrown players who will accompany the first team this summer in preseason. It is very possible that Unicaja will be left without three internationals like Alberto Díaz, Kendrick Perry and Melvin Ejim, but the truth is that the infirmary has left the squad without two pivots like Augusto Lima and Yankuba Sima. So the youngest will have to complete the team to prepare for training and friendlies.
This summer repeat Miracle Bamadu and Baboucar Badji, regulars in the preseason or in the FIBA window weeks to support the compositor team due to the absence of their internationals. Precisely, they are the only two who return from the preparation of 2022 and together with them they will also be Manu Trujillo, Hugo Vázquez, Pablo Jiménez, Rubén Salas. -after his brilliant role in the 3×3 League of Nations sub-21- the Danish Markus Moller and Mateo Casero.
However, the great novelty will be the incorporation of William of the Pino. The young man from Cordoba will have the luxury of debuting this preseason with the first team players starting on August 30, after a few days off after winning the European sub-16 and becoming the MVP of the continental competition. His latest great personal success has elevated him as one of the great jewels of the quarry and the club is already giving him stripes.
