UFFICIALE A - La separazione tra la Reyer Venezia e Julyan Stone
L’Umana Reyer comunica ufficialmente che si sono temporaneamente separate le strade con l’atleta Julyan Stone. La Società ha accolto positivamente il chiaro messaggio di scuse diramato anche sui social da Julyan che riconosce il comportamento lineare e corretto sempre tenuto dalla Reyer. Conseguentemente, con Julyan è stato raggiunto un accordo consensuale grazie al quale sarà adesso libero di accordarsi con una franchigia NBA per la prossima stagione. A Julyan un grande in bocca lupo. Di seguito il messaggio scritto da Julyan Stone via Instagram:
julyan_stone2 "I am really happy to have reached an agreement with Umana Reyer and must thank the Club publicly for having been forthcoming and thoughtful. Over the past few days unfair and undeserved accusations have hit the Club and I am truly sorry for that. I found myself in a difficult personal and professional situation, which I realize could have been handled better. After an unforgettable season, Reyer and myself agreed on a contract for two more years, which undoubtedly shows how highly I am regarded by the Club. I must acknowledge, to the Club’s credit, that my father’s severe health conditions were known at the time we signed the agreement and for that reason Umana Reyer accepted to grant me an NBA escape until July 9. Unfortunately Hornets’ offer came after that date. As I found myself contractually prevented from seizing such unique opportunity at a time when my father’s conditions had worsened, I felt unsettled and anxious. As a result, I got off with the Club on the wrong foot and somehow credited an inaccurate and unfair account of the Club’s behaviour. Venice could have legitimately demanded that I abide by the contract and that may have prevented me from playing with the Hornets. I am truly, sincerely grateful that, on more reasonable grounds, Umana Reyer agreed to terminate the contract. I apologize for any unintended harm to the Club and its incredible fans. I will forever be proud of our scudetto, honoured to have worn la maglia orogranata and thankful for the love and respect I received during my stay in Venice."
