Barça Lassa and Phillip Michael Pressey have reached an agreement for the 2017/18 season, with the option to continue for one more. The point guard, 26, passed his medical check-up.
Quick across court, able to score, always active and with great hands, he can also give the team direction thanks to his great understanding of the game.

In 2015/16, he was part of the Philadelphia 76ers (14 games), the Phoenix Suns (9 games) and also turned out 31 times for the Idaho Stampede in the D-League, scoring 13.7 points and giving 6.9 Assists.
