Valencia Basket and Martin Hermannsson are set to keep working together until the end of the 2023-24 season, the club announced on Friday. Hermannsson (1.90 meters, 27 years old) averaged 8.7 points on 43.9% three-point shooting across 20 games, while he ranked eighth in assists at 5.3 per night. In the 2021-22 season, his second at Valencia, Hermannsson helped his team reach the 7DAYS EuroCup semifinals. In his team's final game of the Spanish League campaign, however, he broke the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) in his left knee and is expected to be out for the best part of the 2022-23 campaign.
