Zalgiris inks playmaker Westermann
Zalgiris Kaunas announced the signing of point guard Leo Westermann to a one-year deal with a team option for the 2017-18 season. Westermann (1.96 meters, 23 years old) arrives from French powerhouse Limoges CSP, where he averaged 10.1 points on 88.9% free throw shooting and 4.3 assists in 10 Turkish Airlines Euroleague games last season. Westermann also played the 2015-16 Eurocup with Limoges and averaged 8.4 points on 41.4% three-point shooting and 4.1 assists in eight games. Despite his young age, Westermann brings four seasons of Euroleague experience: two with Partizan Belgrade of Serbia and two more with Limoges. He has also played for Centre Federal du Basket-ball and Asvel Lyon Villeurbanne of his native France. He helped Partizan win the Serbian League and the Adriatic League titles in 2013 and lifted the French League trophy with Limoges in 2015. Westermann is a member of the French national team, which he helped win the bronze medal at EuroBasket 2015.
