Unicaja interested in Batista

It seems that his new Spanish passport and his excellent season with Fuenlabrada last year has made Esteban Batista a desired man all over the continent.

After Unicaja Malaga lost Kosta Perovic to Barcelona, Batista is reported to be one of their main targets for the paint along with Robert Archibald.

It will of course not be easy, as the 27-year old Uruguay-native Batista is still under contract with Fuenlabrada and has a buyout clause of 2-mil euros, but it is to be expected that Fuenla will negotiate a possible release for less than that.

Esteban Batista was one of the best centers in last season’s ACB edition, averaging 14 points and 9 rebounds.
