Barça Nears Signing Jaron Blossomgame: A Key Piece for the Team’s Future

Barça continues to be the main protagonist of this beginning of the transfer market in the world of basketball. After the failed signing of Mario Hezonja and the agreement closed with Kevin Punter, The Barça team is looking for a guaranteed ‘3’ and it seems that there is already one chosen.

This is Jaron Blossomgame who, according to ‘BasketNews’, is about to leave AS Monaco to wear Barcelona next season.

According to the aforementioned media, The conversations between the club and the forward are very advanced. If confirmed, his arrival would cover the loss of Nikola Kalinic.

The American, 30 years old and 2.00 meters tall, has been one of Monaco’s key pieces in the last two seasonswhere the Monegasque team reached the Euroleague Final Four in 2023 and fell just short of it last April.

The 59th overall pick in the 2017 NBA Draft, Jaron Blossomgame began his European career with Ironi Nahariya in the 2020-21 season.

With Hezonja ruled out, Barça needed another media signing to cover up the mess and restore hope to the fans. The club reacted quickly and sealed an agreement with Kevin Punter, an outside scorer whom it had already wanted to sign a year ago. Then the American had left Barça jilted after reaching an agreement to end up renewing for Partizan, which now leaves him free to allocate his high salary to other signings. At the Belgrade club it was around 2.3 million euros net, at Barça it will reach 2 million net.

But Hezonja was a ‘three’ (who can also play as a ‘four’) and Punter is a ‘two’, so Barça has had to adjust its ‘renewal plan’ for this summer.

It seemed logical that the main bet was a forward, since it is the team’s weakest position, especially with the departure of Nikola Kalinic now. But with the bulk of the money allocated to Punter, Barça had to look for a ‘three’ with a somewhat lower profile, and the chosen one seems to be Blossomgame.

The other position that must be reinforced is center, since James Nnaji intends to make the leap to the NBA and Barça also wants to guard Jan Vesely’s back with a center with a different profile than Willy Hernangómez. Except for a last-minute injection from the club, a big expense is not expected on those two pieces.

It also remains to be seen if Punter’s arrival causes movements in the outside line, which is currently somewhat overloaded. With the American joining Nico Laprovittola and Darío Brizuela, Barça has three guards, while in the base position Rokas Jokubaitis will be out but Satoransky will remain, an agreement has been closed with Juan Núñez and it remains to be seen what decision Ricky Rubio makes about Her future. If the one from El Masnou does not continue, it would not be surprising if Lapro returned, permanently or punctually, to the position of ‘one’ that he already occupied for many years.
