Kieron Achara Leaves Glasgow After 1 Game, Joins Italian Side

GB big man Kieron Achara’s stint with the Glasgow Rocks lasted one game as the club announced he has left to join Italian Lega B side Barcellona.

A clause in Achara’s contract allowed him to accept the offer from the second division side, which sees him parting on amicable terms. Before his departure yesterday Kieron said:

“I really enjoyed my time here at the Rocks. It was good to be playing at home and was really looking forward to playing in front of my family. I had a great group of teammates which is hard to walk away from.”

Player/Coach Sterling Davis is obviously disappointed to lose the GB international, but wished him all the best:

“I knew it would happen at some point…just not 2 practices and one game later. For those three days though I had to kind of pinch myself because I really felt we had the necessary combination to make moves in the league. Keiron is a first class guy and would have been a great leader for us. We wish him the best this season.”

In his only game with the Rocks, Achara finished with 13 points and 11 rebounds in 28 minutes of action.
