Young Sergi Martinez, four more years in Barca
FC Barcelona Lassa announced on Tuesday a contract extension with young power forward Sergi Martinez for four more years, until the end of the 2020-21 season. Martinez (2.02 meters, 18 years old) was named to the all-tournament team last week at the Euroleague Basketball ADIDAS NEXT GENERATION TOURNAMENT in Istanbul, where he averaged 22 points, 5.3 rebounds, 2.7 assists and 2.3 steals in three games. He had scored 13.8 points per game a year earlier when U18 Barcelona won its first ANGT Finals title in Berlin. Martinez was also named MVP in the L'Hospitalet qualifying tournament played last January, which Barcelona won. Martinez averaged 12.4 points, 6.2 rebounds, 1.2 assists and 1.2 steals in the five games in that tournament. With this contract extension, Barcelona secures a local young talent for the upcoming future.
