Joan Pardina and the CB Granada Foundation will keep their paths together for one more season. The forward, key on Pablo Pin’s board in the 76 games he has already played with the Granada team and a fundamental part in the recent qualification for the playoff, thus renews his contract with the red-black club. In the city of the Alhambra, it will complete four consecutive campaigns, all of the entity chaired by Óscar Fernández-Arenas in LEB Oro.
He was injured on February 25 in the match that Coviran Granada played against CB Almansa with Afanion and will not play again this season. Joan Pardina suffered a relapse in training and on Monday underwent surgery in Barcelona to begin recovering from her anterior cruciate ligament tear.
Despite this, both the red-black club and Joan Pardina have wanted to extend their relationship for one more season. Good proof that the Catalan’s stay in the entity is being satisfactory at all levels. The forward’s performance has been outstanding so far both on the floor and away from it, as he had even become captain for this season.
In the 15 games he had played this season, Joan Pardina averaged 6.1 points, 4.7 rebounds and a PIR of 8. The rojinegro’s two best performances occurred on matchdays 9 and 15. The forward scored 14 points, captured 7 rebounds and reached 17 PIR in the match played by Coviran Granada on the TAU Castelló court. In addition, Joan Pardina added 9 points, 7 rebounds, 6 fouls received and a PIR of 21 in the clash that his team played away from Bàsquet Girona.

He is a player who sacrifices himself for the team, he is identified with the project and for us it is very important. We want to continue enjoying the work you do. His renewal is fair and he deserves that help and confidence in recovering from his injury. The whole club is with him so that he can go back to the top. He deserves it and it has been very easy to agree with him ”.
Statements by the president of the CB Granada Foundation, Óscar Fernández-Arenas: “We are glad that the operation went perfectly. From the CB Granada Foundation we want to thank everything you do for the club with an automatic renewal so that you will be with us next season ”.
