VEF Riga has added 23-year old American point guard Justin Cobbs on a four week try-out.
Justin Cobbs graduated from University of California this year. As a senior at California last season, he averaged 15.6 points, 5.8 assists and 2.9 rebounds.
After playing for California he was not selected in 2014 NBA draft, but he was part of Memphis Grizzlies Summer League team in Orlando where he was in the same team with current VEF Riga forward Janis Timma.
In August, Cobbs went to Spain and went through preseason camp and games with Laboral Kutxa. After one month with Euroleague club he traveled back to USA and joined Charlotte Hornets. He was released soon before the start of NBA regular season.
