Both Zorg en Zekerheid Leiden Basketball (ZZ Leiden) and Samardo Samuels have decided to terminate the contract with immediate effect.
The expected duration of the procedure to qualify for a work permit in the Netherlands is so long that it is better for both Zorg en Zekerheid Leiden and Samuels not to let the contract go ahead.

“It is a pity that Samuels cannot be admired in a shirt from Zorg en Zekerheid Leiden this season, but in this way Samuels can respond to offers from other clubs and the club does not have to sit in the waiting room,” said Marcel Verburg, chairman of Zorg en Zekerheid Leiden Basketball.

Samuels has not wasted time and has signed a pro contract in Mexico LNBP with the Libertadores de Queretaro
