Latvian basketball player Martins Laksa, who previously played for the Spanish Super League (ACB) at Compostela Rio Natura Monbus Obradoiro for two seasons, has joined the Polish basketball league Lublin Start, the club said in a Facebook profile.
Laksa joined the Spanish club Rio Natura Monbus Obradoiro two years ago, having played 30 ACB league games, averaging 3.5 points and 47.5% two-point shots.
Previously, the basketball player represented the Latvian Basketball League (LBL) team Valmiera / ORDO.
For Lax, who played in the Latvian national teams U-18, U-18 and U-20, this will be his second attempt at a foreign club.
Laxa has played in the teams of VEF Riga, Ventspils, Jurmala / Phoenix and Valmiera / ORDO, becoming a two-time LBL Champion, winning the first title with VEF Riga, and in 2016 triumphantly with the Valmiera Club. He is also the 2013 Baltic Basketball League (BBL) Champion.
The Start team finished 10th among 16 teams in the Polish Championship last season.
This week another Latvian club, Roland Freimanis, signed with another Polish club in Wloclawek, but last year the Polish Premier League was also played by Caspars Vekwagar, who represented Szczecin's team Wilkie Morski. The old wagons, however, left Poland to join the Jürmala / Betsafe unit later in the season.
