Cajasol were dealt an early blow this season when point guard Earl Calloway went down with a badly broken toe. The Bulgarian international had averaged 9.4ppg, 2.3rpg, 4.2apg and 1.4spg the previous season for Cajasol, functioning as their best ball handler, playmaker, speedster and guard defender, as well as an occasional shooter and rebounder. Without him, the team had no real point guard, and thus had to bring journeyman Bojan Popovic on a short term contract. However, Popovic struggled, averaging only 3.5 points and 1.3 assists in Eurocup play, shooting terribly from outside but continuing to try anyway. (Upon Calloway's return, Popovic was allowed to leave, hooking up with fellow ACB team Meridiano Alicante, for whom he has averaged 6.7 points and 1,0 assists.)

- Bojan Popovic
Serbian international guard Popovic started the year with Lietuvos Rytas, and averaged 11.2 points and 5.4 assists per game in the Euroleague. However, after Rytas were eliminated from the Euroleague, Popovic left the team and joined another Euroleague team, Efes Pilsen of Turkey. In three months, Popovic has played no Turkish league games for the club, appearing in only Euroleague games. He has barely played, too, totalling 81 minutes, 20 points, 12 rebounds and 8 assists in 6 games for the team.
