Dinamo Banco di Sardegna Sassari added size and defense to its roster by signing center Shane Lawal to a one-year deal on Thursday. Lawal arrives from Astana, where he averaged 9.2 points, 7.4 rebounds and 1.9 blocks in 20 VTB League games last season. He helped Astana win the Kazakhstan League and Cup titles and led both the VTB League and Kazakhstan League in blocks (1.6 bpg.). Lawal has also played for Al Arabi Club in Qatar, Guadalajara and Knet Rioja Clavijo in Spain and Verona in Italy. He is set to make his Turkish Airlines Euroleague debut with Sassari in the 2014-15 season.
