Baskonia re-signs power forward Shengelia
Baskonia Vitoria Gasteiz reached a new agreement with power forward Toko Shengelia to stay together for three more years until the end of the 2019-20 season, the club announced Wednesday. Shengelia (2.06 meters, 26 years old) averaged 10.8 points on 54.2% three-point shooting (13-of-24) and 4.2 rebounds in 24 Turkish Airlines EuroLeague games last season, his third with the club. In the 2015-16 season, Shengelia helped Baskonia reach the EuroLeague Final Four, but could not play there due to injury. He started his professional career with Valencia Basket, helping it win the 7DAYS EuroCup title in 2010. Shengelia has also played for Pepinster and Spirou Charleroi of Belgium, Chicago and Brooklyn of the NBA and Springfield of the D-League before joining Baskonia in 2014. In 66 EuroLeague career games– 57 of them with Baskonia – Shengelia has averaged 9.7 points and 4.4 rebounds. He is also a regular member of the Georgian national team.
