Kravish, 29, will be back in Spain’s Liga Endesa after logging 21 games played in the ACB as a member of Baxi Manresa in 2019-20. He is likely to add on his Basketball Champions League experience as well with the team based in Malaga projected to be part of the Qualifiers leading to the Regular Season.
