Klemen Prepelic arbitration vs. Banvit

Klemen Prepelic

Slovenian guard Klemen Prepelic filed a claim against his former team Banvit  Basketbol Kulubu (Turkey-TBL) at the Basketball Arbitral Tribunal (BAT) for outstanding salaries, buyout payment, benefits, penalties and interest. He submitted that the team did not allow him to rejoin the club for the second season of his three-year contract. The club, in its answer, claimed that it acted ethically as it sought a settlement with the player after the new coach determined that he did not want the player. He signed with the team during the 2013/14 season.

The arbitrator of the case upheld the claim in its entirety.
