Virtus Roma is on the market looking for a big man. The hottest name is former NBA big man Brian Skinner who has played in Italy last season too with Benetton Treviso. The two parts are very close and the signing is expected in the next days. Skinner has played 608 games in the NBA at 4.7ppg and 4.7rpg.
With Treviso, in the season 2010-11, Skinner has scored 6.5ppg and pulled down 6.8rpg.

The alternative at Brian Skinner is Kevinn Pinkney. The American big man is in Turkey with Aliaga Petkim.

Virtus Roma also extended for the season the contract of Mihalis Kakiouzis who had signed a one-month deal in December.

The Italian club might also decide to sideline Andrea Crosariol. The big man refused to return to the court in the weekend in the game vs Virtus Bologna claimining an injury occured in the first minutes of the game.
