Maciej Lampe - KhimkiMaccabi Electra Tel Aviv signed big man Maciej Lampe on Tuesday, the club announced. Lampe (210, 24) signed a one-year deal with an option for a second season. He arrives from Russian side Khimki Moscow Region, where he has spent the past three seasons. Last year Lampe helped Khimki reach both the Eurocup final and Russian League finals, though he missed part of the regular season in both competitions due to injury. Lampe finished the season with 9.7 points and 4 rebounds per game over 20 minutes in the Eurocup and 11.5 points and 4.7 rebounds in 21 minutes per game in the Russian League. He was the MVP of the 2008 Russian Cup final after posting 23 points and 13 rebounds to lead Khimki to its first ever trophy. Lampe, who was born in Poland and raised in Sweden, is considered an excellent rebounder and extremely mobile player who can play both center and power forward. Maccabi will be Lampe's second Euroleague club after spending two years with Real Madrid as a teenager. He made his Euroleague debut in the 2002-03 season opener as a 17-year-old when he produced 5 points and 6 rebounds in 10 minutes against Partizan. Lampe began his career with Alvik Stockholm in Sweden and has since played for Madrid in Spain; Phoenix, New Orleans and Houston in the NBA and Khimki in Russia.
