Valencia, Duran agree for rest of season
Eurocup defending champion Valencia Basket has announced that Carles Duran, its interim coach for the last two weeks, has signed a contract to continue heading the team's bench until the end of the season. Duran, 39, took over when Velimir Perasovic and Valencia parted ways on January 22, after which the team won its last two Eurocup games and qualified to the eighthfinals from second place in Group N. Duran had joined the Valencia coaching staff last summer after having been assistant coach off and on with Jovenut Badalona between 1998 and 2010 - working with Aito Garcia Reneses and Sito Alonso in the Eurocup - and also as a head coach in the Spanish lower divisions.
