Limoges CSP Transfer Watch
Limoges decided as early as April to extend the contract of their young head coach Mehdy Mary and almost immediately after they started renewing their collaboration with several players of their 2019-20 roster.
As a result, the 1993 European champions are only out on the summer market looking for a few targeted additions, the latest of which is shooting guard Philip Scrubb.
