Erazem Lorbek (born February 21, 1984 in Ljubljana, SR Slovenia, SFR Yugoslavia) is a Slovenian professional basketball player. He is a 6 ft 10 ½ in (2.10 m) forward-center who currently plays with the pro club CSKA Moscow.

Pro career

Lorbek was developed by the youth program of Union Olimpija, the top basketball club in his hometown and in the Slovenian League, and he attended Michigan State University, where he played for the Spartans in the 2002-03 season. However, he chose to return to Europe after a year at Michigan State, signing a deal with Fortitudo Bologna of the Italian League, where he played from 2003 to 2006 (the team was known as Skipper Bologna in the 2003-2004 season and Climamio Bologna from 2004-2006).

Lorbek won the Euroleague 2004-05 Rising Star Award and originally declared for the 2004 NBA Draft, but he ultimately withdrew his name from consideration. [ [ Fifty-Three Early Entry Candidates Withdraw.] ] He was drafted in the 2nd round of the 2005 NBA Draft by the Indiana Pacers. The Pacers have since allowed him to further develop his game in Europe.

Lorbek began the 2006-07 season on loan from the Spanish League club Unicaja Málaga to the Italian League club Benetton Treviso; however, in February 2007, the deal was voided by the Italian Basketball Federation due to unspecified violations of federation regulations. Lorbek then signed with Lottomatica Roma of the Italian League, where he became one of the best power forwards of the Euroleague.
