ANDhe Dominican guard Andrés Feliz extended this Thursday his contract with Joventut de Badalona until June 2025, according to the Verdinegro club.
Happy arrived in the final stretch of last season and became one of the revelations of the season. She initially played in the linked team, CB Prat in LEB Oro, and was a fundamental piece in the rise of the team.
In his debut in the ACB, the Dominican, an electric player, with a lot of physicality and who stands out in defense-attack transitions, has become a fundamental player for Joventut, especially in the final stretch of the season.
The point guard from Guachupita averaged 7.4 points and 1.8 assists per game. He stood out in the victory against Barça (21 points), the 28 scored in the Nou Congost against Baxi Manresa or the good performance in the quarterfinals (Lenovo Tenerife) and semifinals (Barça).
In statements to the Penya media, Feliz admitted his satisfaction with the agreement. “I am grateful to the club for all the trust shown. Now it’s time to work to repay all the trust shown in me”, he commented.

The base also referred to the connection he has with the Olympic stands. “The people here are very special, they always support our basketball. They helped us during the season, and on a personal level, being an important part of the team makes me feel very good,” he insisted.
With a view to the future, the base wants to continue growing and improving to give “more to Penya and the city.” Feliz recalled that Badalona had given him the first opportunity to be in the ACB: “I like living in the city and I’m very happy to be here.”
