ANDCuenca’s pivot Víctor Arteaga, aged 29 and 2.12, has signed a two-month contract with MoraBanc Andorra, thus supplementing Moussa Diagne’s absence due to an injury without a return date.
The new MoraBanc player left Movistar Estudiantes this summer, where he spent the last five seasons and this summer he was helping the Río Breogán de Lugo.
The new pivot for the Principality team has accumulated 181 games in the Endesa League with averages of 5.9 points, 3.4 rebounds, 0.5 blocks and a PIR of 6.5. Last season, the relegation season for Movistar Estudiantes, he scored 6.8 points and captured 4.9 rebounds.
The inner game of MoraBanc will now remain with ‘Tunde’ Olumuyiwa and Víctor Arteaga awaiting the recovery of Moussa Diagne and also of Nacho Llovet.
“He is a player who knows the league well and at this time he can help us a lot on a day-to-day basis because he arrives in good shape and will be able to give us an immediate result,” said Francesc Solana, MoraBanc sports director, who praised Víctor Arteaga, his last signing. “He has already shown what he is capable of doing in the ACB. He is a great man who will do us very well,” he said.
Víctor Arteaga may be tomorrow in the friendly between the team led by Ibon Navarro against Pau Orthez in Toulouse.
