Pops Mensah-Bonsu had an agreement in principle with Cimberio Varese but in the last hours Olimpia Milano made a better offer for him and the British forward decided to accept the proposal of the club coached by Sergio Scariolo.
Pops, whose agent is the same as Scariolo, had already the flight booked to join Varese this week and make his debut in the weekend against Vanoli Cremona when Olimpia Milano entered in the negotiations convincing the player to join them.
Pops Mensah-Bonsu had already an agrement with Milano a few months ago but then the deal failed because EA7 decided to bring back from loan Leon Radosevic.
A few months later, Olimpia changed his mind and decided to sign him snatching him from Varese.
Pops comes from Cajasol Sevilla where he has played a few weeks averaging 6.3ppg and 4.8rpg in 6 games.
The British parted ways with the Spanish team yesterday
