UCAM Murcia picks up veteran swingman Pocius
UCAM Murcia strengthened its lineup by signing swingman Martynas Pocius, who comes to a 7DAYS EuroCup squad for the first time after seven EuroLeague seasons. Pocius (1.96 meters, 30 years old) arrives from Lithuanian champion Zalgiris Kaunas, where he spent four seasons in separate stints. He averaged 3.4 points and 1.8 rebounds in a reserve role last season. Pocius returns to Spain after playing two seasons for Real Madrid from 2012 through 2014, during which he won the Spanish League championship and the Spanish King’s Cup. With Zalgiris, he collected back-to-back Baltic League titles in 2010 and 2011 and Lithuanian League trophies in 2011, 2014 and last season. Pocius also played one season in Turkey for Galatasaray Istanbul and has featured for the Lithuanian national team, with whom he won a bronze medal at the 2010 FIBA World Cup and a silver at EuroBasket 2013.
