Erazem Lorbek - Benetton Treviso Forward Erazem Lorbek was forced to end his contract with Benetton Treviso after the club breached the Italian Basketball regulations when acquiring him from Unicaja earlier this year. The 23-year-old Lorbek is delighted to have joined Euroleague side Lottomatica Roma, where he will play until the end of the season. "Roma have a great roster with important players of great talent," he said. "I have already seen them play several times. I am looking forward to playing with this team." Lorbek is also looking forward to work again under coach Jasmin Repesa, after his previous spell at Climamio Bologna. "Repesa has been the first coach to give me the opportunity to play at the highest level in Italy and in the Euroleague," he said. "He allowed me to grow as a player. For me he is like a second father, I have great respect for Jasmin. I know how he works and what he wants from each player and the group. I know I will have to work hard, this is a new team, a new city and a new experience for me." Lorbek said. Having played with Benetton in the Top 16, Lorbek will not be able to take part in Euroleague action, as the signings deadline expired before the start of this phase. With Benetton, Lorbek played only two Euroleague games averaging 6.5 points and 3.5 rebounds.
