Porter Troupe signs with Lietkabelis

Porter Troupe

Porter Troupe (196 cm, Portland ’02) inked a deal to play with Panevezys Lietkabelis (Lithuania-LKL). The 33-year-old veteran is making the move from Stal Ostrow (Poland-TBL) after being released this month. He did not play his best basketball with the Polish team as he averaged a career-low 6.7 ppg while shooting 29.6 percent from three. In years past, Troupe shot lights out, especially from three. Last season, he played with CS Energia Rovinari Targu Jiu (Romania-Liga Nationala) where he averaged 14.5 ppg while shooting 44.3 percent from three in 20 games. This marks the 15th season playing professionally for Troupe.

His new team hopes he can find his three-point stroke again. They currently sit in second in the LKL standings with an 18-7 record. The new three-point threat provided by Troupe could be a major factor for Lietkabelis down the stretch.
