Dinamo Sassari Transfer Watch

By mid-July, Dinamo Sassari had already signed no less than seven new players and declared the summer recruitment process all but concluded. It started on June 15, when the club and head coach Gianmarco Pozzecco announced they would continue together into the 2020-21 season. From then on, Sassari started bringing in players who were almost like-for-like replacements for the ones departing.

Sassari have reinforced the forward spots with the American duo of Jason Burnell and Justin Tillman, with Estonian youngster Kaspar Treier and by engineering a somewhat surprising move as they lured Eimantas Bendzius, the former Rytas captain, away from Vilnius.

Tillman averaged a double-double of 19.8 points and 10.3 rebounds in the Israeli Winner League with Galil Gilboa, while Burnell averaged 11.7 points and 5.2 rebounds per game in the 2019-20 Serie A with Cantú.

Bendzius averaged 10.7 points and 4.3 rebounds per game in the 2019-20 Lithuanian LKL regular season while he contributed 12 points and 4.1 rebounds per game in the EuroCup.

Sassari brought in combo guard Vasa Pusica  after the Serbian turned heads in Italy last season with Pesaro, averaging 13.4 points and 3.9 assists per game in the Serie A, and sharp-shooting Croatian guard Filip Kruslin, who spent the last four seasons at Cedevita.

The Sardinian club concluded recruitment by penning another veteran player, this time as their backup center, in 34-year-old Italian Luca Gandini who played for Varese last year.
