Laboral Kutxa are looking for a player to replace Davis Bertans who is out for the rest of the season after tearing the anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee in a game against EA7 Emporio Armani Milan.
Spanish media reports that Martynas Pocius is the main candidate right now after other players refused the offer. According the report, Mickael Gelabale and Pocius were the final two players on the list but the Frenchman said no.
Pocius struggled to find his form this season in Turkey with Galatasaray. Lithuanian international was plagued with injuries that prevented him from playing at the level the club expected from him.
This season Pocius is averaging 6.1 points per game in Euroleague for the Turkish side. Galatasaray are already eliminated from the Top 16 with two games left to play.
Meanwhile Laboral Kutxa are tied 4th with Anadolu Efes and are still fighting for a playoff spot in Euroleague.
