ALBA Berlin has strengthened its backcourt by adding point guard Will Cherry for next season. Cherry (1.85 meters, 25 years old) comes off a solid debut in Europe last season, when he played with Zalgiris Kaunas. In the Turkish Airlines Euroleague, Cherry was a part-time starter who averaged 7.1 points, 2.4 rebounds, 1.7 assists and 1 steal in 18 minutes per game. His numbers were similar over 36 domestic league games for Zalgiris. Prior to Europe, Cherry played eight games last season for Cleveland of the NBA after having spent the previous season with Canton of the NBDL and the four before that at University of Montana.
