It did not take long for Kerem Kanter to establish himself in the Betsafe LKL, with the Dzukija newcomer picking up the Player of the Month honors for February.
In his first two games in Lithuania, the big man from Turkey averaged 25.0 points and 9.0 rebounds, as the Alytus club defeated Nevezis and fell to Zalgiris in a close battle.
His best game came against the defending Betsafe LKL champions, with Kanter putting up 31 points, 8 rebounds, 3 steals and 2 assists in a 90-75 loss.
The Team of the Week for February was rounded out by the Lietkabelis duo of Saulius Kulvietis and Mindaugas Kupsas, as well as Zygimantas Janavicius of Skycop Prienai and Yannick Franke of Pieno Zvaigzdes.
