Slokar is another story. They are thinking of keeping him in Europe for another season so that he can improve his back to the basket skills. They also need him to improve on his physicality when it comes to the offensive end and defensive end. And with the European leagues such as the Euroleague, it is very aggressive. So here we go with our new improved team.
