Erik Roy and Everett Clark will no longer be part of the team for the new season, due to personal reasons that make it impossible for them to travel to Europe. Thus, due to the fact that the summer period helps to perfect the contracts of the foreigners, an amicable agreement was reached with both players by which they became free from the signed contract.
