Barcelona renewed Jaka Lakovic for 2 seasons

Regal FC Barcelona and Jaka Lakovic have agreed to terms to keep the guard at the club for two more years. Lakovic (186, 30) has spent the past three seasons with Barcelona and joined the Euroleague's exclusive 2,000-point club this past season.

He averaged 9.9 points and 2.9 assists in 18 Euroleague games last year, despite missing time midseason due to nasal surgery. Lakovic shined brightest in the Quarterfinal Playoffs, recording 14.8 points and 2.6 assists per game to lead Barcelona to the Final Four. The Lakovic signing comes days after the club added forward Pete Mickeal as Barcelona looks to strengthen the squad that reached the Final Four and won the Spanish League title.
