Dairis Bertans - EuroBasket 2013 Profile

Team 2012-13: VEF Riga (Latvia-LBL)
Career: BK Ventspils (Latvia-LBL, 2009-10); VEF Riga (Latvia-LBL, 2010-13)


Often overshadowed by younger brother Davis, the electric Dairis is now set to get his own share of the spotlight after signing with Bilbao Basket. The 23-year-old's key strength is his ability to lift the tempo as soon as he steps on the court, showing unparalleled speed to get the ball up the court. Look for him to catch opponents off-guard in the opening minutes of the game, penetrating to the basket to give his team early momentum. Like so many others in the Latvian team, loves to put up the three. When he finds his shot, the guard has the ability to lead the team in scoring. His father Dainis, also played at the elite level in Latvia and has become a coach after his playing career. He was integral in the development of both his sons.
