Zalgiris adds, loans top prospect Digbeu

Zalgiris Kaunas reached an agreement with guard Tom Digbeu, who signed a multi-year deal with the Lithuanian powerhouse on Thursday. Digbeu (1.95 meters, 17 years old) will be sent on loan to another Lithuanian team, Prienai, next season. He arrives from FC Barcelona's second team, where he averaged 3.9 points and 1.3 rebounds in 16 Spanish second division games last season. Digbeu has played the Euroleague Basketball Adidas Next Generation Tournament in each of the last three season. He averaged 14.8 points, 5.8 rebounds and 4.0 assists in four ANGT Qualifier Valencia games last season. His father, Alain Digbeu, was also a professional basketball player who played in the EuroLeague with four different teams: ASVEL Villeurbanne - reaching the 1997 Final Four -, Barcelona, Real Madrid and Fortitudo Bologna.
