Laboral Kutxa Vitoria bolstered its frontcourt by inking center Colton Iverson to a one-year deal on Tuesday. Iverson (2.13 meters, 25 years old) arrives from Besiktas Integral Forex Istanbul, where he averaged 8.8 points and 5.5 rebounds in 18 Eurocup games last season, helping his team reach the eighthfinals. It was Iverson’s debut season as a professional basketball player. He played for Colorado State University for two seasons and was named the 2012-13 school’s athlete of the year. He averaged 14.2 points and led the Mountain West Conference in rebounding with 9.8 per game. Iverson also collected First-Team All-Mountain West honors. He helped the Rams reach the NCAA Tournament and win their opening-round game for the first time since 1989. Before transferring to Colorado State, Iverson played three seasons at the University of Minnesota. Iverson will make his Turkish Airlines Euroleague debut with Laboral Kutxa in the upcoming season.
