Nik Caner-Medley Has a New Team in Spain

Nik Caner-Medley (2002-06) has signed with a new team, MMT Estudiantes Madrid. This is Nik's third season playing in Spain's top league, the ACB: last season, he played for Cajasol Seville, and two years ago he was with Kalise Gran Canaria.

Those of you who studied Spanish in high school may have already translated the team's nickname for yourselves: "The Students". You know with a nickname that sounds so weak, they must be an ironically tough team.

Spanish sports news site enCancha.com (translation) talks about the signing:
Caner-Medley, playing for Cajasol, was one of the players who awoke from the lethargy that had sunk the bench in Seville after spending a long time as the bottom club in the ACB. He played in 20 games for Seville, averaging 10.7 points and nearly 8 rebounds per game.

"He's a player who is very familiar with the ACB. I'm sure he will create a strong connection with the fans of the 'Stu' because he gives it all on the court: maximum intensity and pure heart," said sports director Nacho Azofra.

Three more news sites with pretty much the exact same story, but with different pictures of Nik Caner-Medley: here, here, and here.
