Kyle spent seven great seasons, helped win two titles of the champion of Euroleague, brilliantly coped with the functions of the captain, became a symbol of the team. His contribution to our overall success cannot be overstated, and we very much respect the player’s decision to take on this new challenge, to start a new phase of my life.

Thank you so much for all these years!
