The carousel is on for good. They are planning a solid earthquake at this club

It has been known for several weeks that there must be a reshuffle in the GTK Gliwice team. Now the words have turned into action – coach Robert Witka has a new player for the circuit.

The last team of the Energa Basket League table needs a shock and a new quality. – This cannot continue – said coach Robert Witka at one of the recent press conferences.

GTK has won just 3 of 12 games this season. Currently, he is recording a series of five consecutive defeats, and the last four meetings lost by 20, 52, 23 and 32 points respectively. This adds up to 127!

Will something change in Gliwice? The first positive news is certainly Kacper Radwański’s return to training. This one should be ready for the game on December 5 with Anwil Włocławek. The captain gives the energy and character that are so lacking.

Against the “Rottweilers”, Witek will certainly have a new circuit at his disposal. This is Josh Fortune. The American started the current game in Greece, where he joined the team from Larissa. There, however, he managed to play only two matches.

Fortune has already played in Europe in Hungary, Germany and Denmark. He spent the last full season (2020/2021) in Ukraine – with the BK Zaporozhye team he won the title of vice-champion of the country, and he himself contributed a lot to this success by noting 16.7 points, 4.2 rebounds and 1.9 assists.

The 27-year-old plays as a thrower. In Ukraine, he scored 39 percent of long distance shots. Currently, he is the seventh foreign player in the GTK team. Earlier, the team from Gliwice was strengthened by Damonte Dodd, who even managed to make a debut against Śląsk Wrocław (8 points, four rebounds and four assists).

However, Fortune and Dodd are not everything, and most likely just the beginning of big changes. In the first game after the national break, there will be more foreign faces. Only Roberts Stumbris is certain of the “foreign set” to date.

Interestingly, Fortune is the second player of Agis Armias Larissa who left the club during this break for the national team and chose to play in the EBL. The first was quarterback Jay Threatt, who joined the Kinga Szczecin team.
