The FC Barcelona continues to shape the megaproject of its basketball section for the next season. After the coach's renewal, Svetislav Pesic, and the renewal of Víctor Claver, this Wednesday has announced the signing of Cory Higgins, coming from CSKA Moscow. Another forward waiting for Barça's big bet for that position: Nikola Mirotic.

Higgins, 30, will sign a contract for three seasons, until June 30, 2022, once it passes the medical review. It measures 1'96 and arrives at Barcelona after proclaiming itself champion of the Euroleague. In the last two seasons he has averaged more than 14 points per game in this competition.

“You can score, both from the outside (47% of success in 3-pointers in 129 games during 4 seasons) and in penetration, and that in the one-on-one you always get an advantage”, explains FC Barcelona; “In addition, in the defensive aspect, he is a very active player with hands and a great defense also of one against one”.

Formed at the University of Colorado, he played 44 matches in the NBA with Charlotte Hornets in the seasons 2011/12 and 2012/13. He made the leap to Europe with the help of Trimph Lyubertsy, current Zenit of St. Petersburg, and went through the Gaziantep Turkish before landing at CSKA Moscow, with which he has won two Euroleague and 4 Russian leagues.
