Caja Laboral have confirmed the signing of Esteban Batista who will be replacing Marcus Haislip who was released on free, earlier.
Caja Laboral was interested in Batista even in the summer but wouldn’t give in to Fuenlabrada demands of a big buy-out. However some injuries, failed signings and a tough Euroleague Top16 made them spew it out for the player as the estimated buy-out will be in the region of 850.000 euros.
The Uruguayan international, who is currently averaging 18.9 ppg and 8.3 rpg signed until the summer of 2014.
The player stated that he has only good words to say about Fuenlabrada team and their fans for giving him the chance to play the best basketball of his life and that he will have the best memories.
Fuenlabrada is rumoured to be targeting Maccabi Tel Aviv’s Richard Hendrix on loan to replace Batista.
