FC Barcelona announced on Tuesday that it has parted ways with center Mario Kasun. Club and player agreed to rescind what had been a their three-year contract after two seasons. Kasun (216, 28) played only parts of the those two seasons due to health problems. Kasun was among the Euroleague's top 35 scorers with 12.7 points per game during the last regular season, but missed the final two games of that phase while undergoing treatment for heart arrhythmia he suffered during a domestic league game. In the 2006-07 season, his first with Barcelona, Kasun put up 11.9 points on average in eight Euroleague games, but was otherwise injured. Kasun had come to Barcelona from Orlando of the NBA after having played previously in Frankfurt Skyliners and RheinEnergie Cologne of Germany. He started career in his native Croatia with Delnice and KK Zrinjevac.

Mario Kasun is probably (99.9%) leaving FC Barcelona, despite having another year on his contract, and will join Turkish powerhouse Efes Pilsen.

After signing Preston Shumpert, who played for Besiktas Cola Turka last season and averaged 17.5 points, 4.6 rebounds, 1.5 assists and 1.8 steals in the ULEB Cup, Mario will be a great addition to the team.

Mario will also play with Charles Smith, who played for Real Madrid last year. As soon as you read an official statement, make sure you remember where you read it first!

As you can see, Mario is a huge fan of Undrcrwn; Iím sure Shawn Kemp will also be a fan once he sees that shirt next to Mario
