Georgian center Giorgi Shermadini has signed with Maccabi Tel Aviv.
Shermadini averaged 10.9 points and 5.5 rebounds as the backup center for Cantu in Euroleague.
“Shermadini is a very active player in the paint with a good sense for offensive rebounds and with an excellent shot, both from mid-range and the free-throw line,” a Maccabi press release read.
“He’s a superb pick-and-roll player and has an impressive presence on defense.”
Maccabi is expected to lose Sofoklis Schortsanitis and Richard Hendrix.
