Perennial Serbian League champion Partizan has improved its roster for the upcoming 2008-09 Euroleague season by inking power forward Stephane Lasme to a one-year deal. Lasme (203, 25) arrives from the Miami Heat, where he averaged 5.2 points, 3.3 rebounds and 1.4 blocks in 16 NBA games last season, during which he also played for the Los Angeles D-Fenders in the NBDL. Lasme has a successful college career at the University of Massachusetts, where he was named All-Atlantic 10 Defensive Player of the year in 2006 and 2007. In fact, Lasme shocked everyone with his shot blocking skills. Not only does he hold the record for most triple-doubles in one NCAA season along with Jason Kidd and Michael Anderson, but Lasme also became the first player to register four triple-doubles with 10 or more blocks in each of them. Lasme averaged 13.5 points, 9.5 rebounds and 5.1 blocks in 33 NCAA games in the 2006-07 season. He is also a member of the Gabonese national team.
