Lauri Markkanen is serving in the military.

Long off-season for Lauri Markkanen After the Utah Jazz’s failure to make the Playoffs.

Plenty of time to train and recharge the batteries for all players. The Finnish star, however, has decided to use these weeks differently. Markkanen, in fact, is fulfilling the military obligations, since the Finland is one of the few European countries where conscription for men is compulsory.

Quite an experience for Utah’s long man, according to his social channels. The days are progressing between trainings and drills and Markkanen also celebrated his 26th birthday with fellow soldiers. Weeks that do not seem stressful, despite the fact that the Finnish military is currently one of the most closely monitored in the world, given its proximity to Russia and the Scandinavian country’s recent entry into NATO.
