Real Madrid announced that they would not bring back guard Nicolas Laprovittola and big man Alex Tyus next season. However, it seems that Laprovittola will not remain without a club for long.

Chema de Lucas from Eurohoops reports that Barcelona is close to signing the 31-year-old Argentinian guard. Both sides are negotiating a one-year deal, with an option to extend the partnership for another season (1+1).

The 1.90 m guard spent the last two seasons with Real Madrid. His role increased substantially after Facundo Campazzo left the team for the Denver Nuggets.

In other news, Real Madrid is looking to return the favor and sign one of Barcelona's players. Real are interested in signing 32-year-old forward Adam Hanga.

Even though Hanga has a contract with Barca for next season, coach Sarunas Jasikevicius does not see room for the Hungarian on his squad. Both sides are in negotiations for the termination of the contract.

It is reported that Real and Hanga are negotiating a three-year deal.

Hanga spent the last four years with the Catalan powerhouse. Last season, he averaged 4.6 points, 2.2 rebounds, 1.7 assists, and 4.8 EFF over 16 minutes in EuroLeague. In the ACB League, his averages were 6.0 points, 3.3 rebounds, 2.0 assists, and 9.4 EFF over 15.4 minutes.

Is there any option for Rokas Jokubaitis to become Jasikevicius\'s second point guard after Calathes? or Barcelona will look for another good player?
