After the announcement by Partizan Belgrade, Virtus Bologna, through a statement on its official channels, also announced the consensual termination by Jaleen Smith, American guard born in 1994, who will leave the Felsinei after winning an Italian Supercup.

"Virtus Segafredo Bologna would like to thank Jaleen Smith for the commitment and dedication shown in this first part of the season with the V Nere’s jersey. Jaleen receives the best wishes for the continuation of the season and career from the Virtussino" this is the statement issued by the club felsineo.

During an interview with the microphones of Mozzart Sport, in addition, the person concerned explained the decision to leave the Black Vs: "Before the season with Virtus, Sergio Scariolo had in mind to have me play as a starting guard. However, when the situation with Lundberg was not è resolved, è a new coach arrived and Iffe è stayed on the team. At that point, there were three guards with similar abilities and I was eventually left out.

"It's all happened in the last few weeks. Seeing the poor minutes I told my agent that it was time for a change of scenery and he contacted Partizan to ask what the situation was, as he knew that the team needed a reinforcement in the backcourt. In the end, everything è turned out to be perfect".
