Tartu Rock booked Viktor Sanikidze
Tartu Rock signed Viktor Sanikidze(2.03-F) according to eurobasket.com. The georgian who covers both forward positions and who is also a member of the Georgia National Team will be playing for estonian champion Tartu Rock in the Baltic League this season. Sanikidze will join Tanoka Beard who signed with Tartu Rock earlier this summer.
Sanikidze was selected in the second round at number 42 at the 2004 NBA Draft by the Atlanta Hawks, but his draft rights were traded the same day to the San Antonio Spurs for a 2005 NBA Draft second-round pick and cash considerations. The Spurs still hold his NBA player rights, but they have yet to sign him to a contract. Sanikidze lead the Georgian National Team in the Eurobasket qualifying rounds of Division B with 21.5 points and 8 rebounds in 4 games.
