Lubos Barton has signed for FC Barcelona after agreeing a three-year deal after leaving DKV Joventut and will strength his new team both on the wings and in the middle.


The 28-year-old is renowned for his ability to play in a number of positions and will be a strong addition to the Blaugrana squad after signing a contract that lasts for two seasons with a third if both parties agree.

After spending three years with Joventut, the 2.02m-tall Barton has the ability to score points and is strong on rebounds. With Badalona he averaged 25 minutes-per-game and scored 11 points-per-game.
