Barcelona tabs power forward Moerman
FC Barcelona Lassa bolstered its frontcourt with the addition of power forward Adrien Moerman on a one-year deal, the club announced Wednesday. Moerman (2.02 meters, 28 years old) arrives from Darussafaka Istanbul, where he averaged 8.1 points and 5.1 rebounds in 33 Turkish Airlines EuroLeague games last season. Before that, he posted big numbers in helping Banvit reach the 2015-16 EuroCup elimination rounds and led the Turkish League with 10.2 rebounds per game that season. Moerman has also played for Chorale Roanne, JSF Nanterre, Entente Orleans 45, SLUC Nancy and Limoges CSP of his native France, as well as for Bilbao Basket of Spain, which he helped reach the EuroCup Championship Game in 2013. His trophy case includes a pair of French League crowns with Limoges, another with Roanne and a French Cup with Orleans. Moerman was named the 2014-15 French League MVP after averaging 14.5 points and 8.8 rebounds in 41 games. Barcelona will be his fifth EuroLeague team – Moerman previously played the competition with Orleans, Nancy, Limoges and Darussafaka – and he has averaged 8.6 points and 5.1 rebounds in 53 career EuroLeague games.
