BC, Riga/Ventspils, 03.09.2009.Print version

American center Aaron Pettway has joined Latvian basketball club ''Ventspils'' for a trial-period, LETA was informed by the club.


The 29-year-old, 6-foot-10 Pettway did not play last season, but during the 2007/2008 season he played for French basketball club ''Strasbourg'', averaging 8.1 points, 5.7 rebounds and 1.1 blocks per game.


Pettway will be with ''Ventspils'' for a one-month trial-period.


''Pettway is a very athletic and dynamic player. He has an excellent jump. He is also very experienced and could be a good front-court addition for us,'' said head coach Agris Galvanovskis. ''I am not concerned that he missed last season due to injury. I hope that he has been practicing, because talent like that does not disappear that fast. That is why we have a month to evaluate him. I believe that he will play already during our September 4 exhibition game, but first I wish to speak with him, then I will make the final decision.''


''Ventspils'' will play its first exhibition game on September 4 in Ventspils (northwestern Latvia) against Russian basketball club ''Severstal''.
