Team 2012-13: BK Ventspils (Latvia-LBL) Career: BK Liepajas Lauvas (Latvia-LBL 2011-12); BK Ventspils (Latvia-LBL 2012-present)
This summer Janis Timma looks set for a senior team debut after previously making the squad before missing the final cut. Coming out of a strong class with also included Kaspars Vecvagers and Davis Bertans, Timma finally found his feet at senior level this season in a starting role for Ventspils domestically and in the EuroChallenge. Timma loves going to the basket with aggression, something which his highlight reel alludes too, and perhaps was also a key attribute that led to him being drafted to the Memphis Grizzlies earlier this summer. Working out in the intense environment of the NBA will only strengthen the small forward who will arrive in Slovenia match-ready and set to make an instant impact.
