Hapoel Holon has added an American forward to its roster. The Israeli team signed Justin Martin to a contract early Dec. 1. Martin most recently played in Colombia for Caciques, where he averaged 12.6 points and 6.6 rebounds per game in seven games. The Southern Methodist grad spent last season in Russia, playing for Spartak Primorie Vladivostok in the Russian Superleague where he averaged 10.1 points and 7.0 rebounds per game for the Russian side.
Hapoel Holon has had a terrific start to the season in the Israeli Winner League at 5-2, and Martin's arrival should help the team compete in the Basketball Champions League with some of the best clubs in Europe, where Holon is 1-5 so far in group play.
