Laboral Kutxa locks up top prospect Raieste for five years
Laboral Kutxa Vitoria Gasteiz made a move with an eye to the future by signing top Estonian prospect Sander Raieste to a five-year contract. Raieste (2.03 meters, 17 years old) comes from Estonian club Audentese SG, where he averaged 7.6 points, 4 rebounds and 1.3 assists in 26 games last season. Last summer he was the tournament MVP at the U16 European Championship Division B. Raieste led the competition in in three-point accuracy at 43.8% and posted 11.9 points, 4.4 rebounds and 2.6 assists over eight games to keep Estonia undefeated en route to the gold medal. Raieste will start the coming season with Laboral Kutxa’s vinculated team, Fundacion 5+11.
