Anadolu Efes lands defensive ace Lasme
June 23, 2014
The second-best shot blocker in the Turkish Airlines Euroleague this decade switched teams with the announcement Sunday that Anadolu Efes Istanbul inked Stephane Lasme to a two-year deal. Lasme (2.03 meters, 31 years old) arrives from Panathinaikos Athens after having been chosen to the All-Euroleague Second Team in May. He averaged 8.9 points, 4.8 rebounds and a block in 28 Euroleague games with the Greens last season, taking Panathinaikos to Game 5 of the playoffs against CSKA Moscow. Lasme was chosen as the 2012-13 Euroleague Best Defender in his first season with the Greens. In just 95 Euroleague career games, Lasme ranks fourth in the all-time blocks list (137). After showing great promise as a teenager in Gabon, Lasme played at the University of Massachusetts, where he was twice named the Atlantic 10 Conference Defensive Player of the Year. Lasme played for different clubs in the United States, both in the NBA and the NBA D-League, during the 2007-08 season. He first came to Europe with Partizan Belgrade the following season and then spent his second Euroleague campaign with Maccabi Electra in Israel. In both seasons he led his club to double titles in the domestic leagues and national cups. Lasme also played for Obradoiro CAB in Spain and Spartak St. Petersburg in Russia before moving to Athens. Lasme helped Panathinaikos win the Greek double - league and cup titles - in 2013 and 2014. He has also been a member of the Gabonese national team.
