According to Kostas Melayess from, Rolands Smits is expected to leave FC Barcelona and will continue his career in Valencia. 

Smits has been the primary substitute for Nikola Mirotic during the last several years in Barcelona. He averaged 4.4 points and 3.1 rebounds for 4.8 PIR in the EuroLeague. Smits' numbers in the Spanish Liga Endesa are similar - 5.2 points, 3 rebounds, and 4.9 PIR.
