Time up

Jonathan Holmes has parted company with Barcelona Lassa. The Catalans confirmed on Saturday that the North American forward, who was under contract from 4 November until 6 January, won't be continuing. Holmes was brought in to cover after Barça found themselves with an injury crisis and without Víctor Claver and Justin Doellman. Now that both players have recovered and with Holmes occipying a place of a non-EU player, Barcelona have decided to let him go. Holmes played 10 games with Barcelona, 7 in the Euroleague (averaging 5.1 points and 2.7 rebounds per game) and three in the Liga Endesa, where he averaged 7.7 points and  3.7 rebounds.
