- Bostjan Nachbar

Bostjan Nachabr has not had a very good season. He moved from Dynamo Moscow to Efes Pilsen in the summer, signing a big fat contract and becoming one of Efes's key targets in a concerted effort to stack up enough talent to compete with the big boys. But it's not gone well; Efes underperformed relative to expectations in the Euroleague, and, while they're currently leading the Turkish league table, it's not been without a great deal of infighting. Things haven't been as bad for Nachbar as they have been for Efes's other big name recruit, Igor Rakocevic - who apparently does not even speak to the coach, and vice versa - but it's not been good. It was even announced that Nachbar had been released late last month, prompting me to write this, although things were patched up the following day when all parties had a "change of heart."

Amidst the turmoil, Nachbar has averaged 6.7 points in Efes's unsuccessful Euroleague run, and averages 8.8 points and 3.5 rebounds per game in the Turkish league.

Note: Non-US teams that the player has played for are, unless stated otherwise, from the top division in that nation. If a league or division name is expressly stated, it's not the top division. The only exceptions to this are the rare occasions where no one league is said to be above the other, such as with the JBL/BJ League split in Japan.
