Fenerbahce announced Darjus Lavrinovic
As expected, Fenerbahce announced the signing of Lithuanian forward/center Darjus Lavrinovic(2.11-PF/C), via their official website. Real Madrid released Darjus Lavrinovic, with the hope of renegotiating his contract from scratch. That was a stupid move as it turns out. Fenerbahce made some space in their "salary pool" by losing Semih Erden and Omer Asik to NBA teams, so they sniped the transfer right under everyone else's noses..
Lavrinovic had a great season with Real Madrid but his roles was diminished with the arrival of Ante Tomic(2.15-C). He averaged 11.1 points and 4.5 rebounds in 20 games in the Euroleague for Real Madrid and also 9.5 points and 4.2 rebounds in 42 games in the ACB. Lavrinovic has also been a long standing member of the Lithuanian National Team.
