Luksa Andric - Galatasaray Medical Park_37535Turkish Airlines Euroleague newcomer Cedevita Zagreb made some noise in the player market on Wednesday by announcing the signing of center Luksa Andric to a one-year contract. Andric arrives from Galatasaray Medical Park of Turkey after having the best Euroleague season of six that he has played so far in the competition. Andric averaged 10.8 points in just 20 minutes per game as Galatasaray made it all the way from the qualifying rounds to the brink of the playoffs. Andric ranked 10th among all Euroleague players in scoring per minute last season, while only three others made more two-point shots at a higher percentage than him. Andric debuted in the Euroleague as a 20-year-old part-time starter with another Zagreb team, Cibona, back in November of 2005. That team missed the playoffs in a tie-breaker. Andric went on to average 5.5 points and 3.3 rebounds in 72 Euroleague games over five seasons with Cibona. In his first season with Galatasaray, he put up 9.8 points and 3.5 rebounds in 12 Eurocup games. Last season, he not only helped Galatasaray qualify for the Euroleague, but enjoyed his first season as a double-digit scorer in international club competition.
