FC Barcelona won't be counting on Rolands Smits, Brandon Davies and Nigel Hayes-Davis anymore, the club announced Friday.

All three's contracts expire on 30 June and the management will not re-negotiate a new one. Besides, Brandon Davies was announced the same day (June 24) by AX Armani Exchange Milan, while Hayes-Davies had already written his farewell message to the club and the fans and Smits has already drawn interest from Baskonia. 

He joined Barca in the summer of 2019 from Zalgiris Kaunas. Davies played, in these three seasons, a total of 219 matches between the ACB League (101), the EuroLeague (99), the Copa del Rey (7), the Spanish Super Cup (6), and the Catalan League (6).
