Real Madrid has officially parted ways with young guard Juan Nunez, who is joining German BBL powerhouse Ratiopharm Ulm. After the 2021-2022 season, Nuñez’s contract at Madrid expired.
Although he had received an extension offer from the Los Blancos for an extension, he decided to move on to a team that will offer him a bigger role than the EuroLeague giants. Nunez played 22 regular season league games with Real Madrid.

He played in just 10 EuroLeague games, with an average playing time of under five minutes. Next season, he will compete in the EuroCup and the German BBL with Ratiopharm Ulm.
The promising playmaker led Spain to the U20 European title in July, averaging 11.6 points, 3.9 rebounds, 4.9 assists, and 1.6 steals despite being one of the youngest players in the competition.
“I am very happy to have reached an agreement with Ulm. First of all I would like to thank the club for the opportunity to play for this team. Above all, thanks also go to coach Anton Gavel for his confidence that I can help this team become more competitive.”
NOCH EIN MVP 🚨🏀
