Iberostar Tenerife Transfer Watch

Iberostar Tenerife announced that they have secured the services of 26-year-old power forward Tyler Cavanaugh, who arrives from newly-crowned German champions Alba Berlin. Cavanaugh averaged 9.2 points and 4.1 rebounds per game in the Bundesliga.

Tenerife have signed 26-year-old winger Dejan Todorovic, who averaged 9,6 points (on 42,5 percent three-point shooting) 3,3 rebounds and 1,4 assists per game with Morabanc Andorra in the 2019-20 Spanish Liga Endesa.

The first ever BCL champions have also secured the return of  Aaron Doornenkamp, who was a member of that triumphant 2016-17 Tenerife side.  The veteran forward is coming back to the island club after spending the last three seasons at Valencia Basket.

Tenerife have signed two more well-versed in the Spanish Liga Endesa players, in point guard Bruno Fitipaldo and big man Emir Sulejmanovic, who arrive from BCL rivals San Pablo Burgos and Bilbao Basket, respectively.

Tenerife, who announced in May that they will retain the services of head coach Txus Vidorretta until the end of 2022-23 season, have also penned contract extensions with the star duo of Marcelinho Huertas and Georgi Shermadini and Spanish international Dani Diez.

Other  key players such as Finnish international Sasu Salin,  Georgios Bogris, Fran Guerra and Alex Loped are under contract for the 2020-21 season, so Tenerife maintain an important part of their core, in contrast with the almost complete overhaul their roster underwent in the summer prior to the 2019-20 season.
