Unicaja stole a march on their opponents by quickly wrapping up a double transfer swoop this week.

Axel Bouteille and Marko Simonovic join the Copa del Rey finalists who are looking to push on in the EuroCup in this second half of the season.

Frenchman Bouteille has been one of the stars of the season, averaging 17.7 points. He joins from Bilbao Basket.

Simonovic, meanwhile, is seen as a replacement for the injured Carlos Suárez. The Serbian has never played in Spain and joins from Cedevita Olimpia.
