I am very excited to be a member of Shiga Lakestars in the new season.
If I can survive the season in good health without injury, I think I can achieve great results.
For that, we also need the power of Lakes boosters.
I can’t wait for the season to start. I am looking forward to seeing you all.

Buva is a player with good experiences in then top leagues in Europe.
He is a very good player in P&R situation and low post .
He can shoot high percentage from 3 pts.
High IQ and consistent in defence will help us a lot.
Buba is a player who has had great experience in the top leagues in Europe.
He is a high-level player in pick-and-roll and low-post play situations.
You can also decide on a three-point shot with a high probability.
His high basketball IQ and stable performance will be a big help.

We have reached a contract agreement with Big Man Buba, who also has experience representing Croatia.
Buba has traveled to some of the world’s highest leagues, including Italy, Spain and Turkey, leading the team to victory in the Lithuanian league in the most recent season.
Also, in the 2021-22 season, he recorded a success rate of over 40% with a three-point shot, leaving a high probability of stats in his career, so I expect him to play with pops from picks and rolls. ..
Even in defense, he has excellent handwork and footwork, and his strong physical ability will be able to compete with the big centers of the B League.
The addition of Buba should be a great reinforcement for Shiga Lakestars.
