The big man comes off a silver-medal winning performance at EuroBasket 2011 with the French national team. Seraphin (2.05 meters, 21 years old) averaged 4.7 points and 1.9 rebounds over nine games in Lithuania for les Bleus. He spent last season for Washington in the NBA where he produced 2.7 points and 2.6 rebounds over 58 appearances. A native of French Guiana, Seraphin developed at Cholet Basket where he made his professional debut as a teenager. He played in the Eurocup during the 2009-10 campaign, but Caja Laboral represents his first Turkish Airlines Euroleague opportunity. Serpahin also collected a silver medal at the 2009 European under-20 Championships with the French selection. At Laboral, he will help fill the shoes of the injured Maciej Lampe, who will miss at least the first half of the season with a hip injury.
