ANDhe Urbas Fuenlabrada confirmed this Sunday the signing for a month of the American point guard Ray McCallumwho has been a part of the Madrid team for a few days and could make his debut this Sunday against Bitci Baskonia (5:00 p.m.).

The American foreigner arrives at Fuenlabrada to reinforce the escort position, in which the Madrid team has not been able to count on the Nigerian Obi Emegano due to muscle injury. Although the club hopes that he can play again next week, they prefer to have another cash before the accumulation of games.

“We have a bit of a problem at shooting guard with the absence of Obi, who has not yet been able to fully rejoin the team. McCallum is fit because he was competing at Hamburg, it was a good market opportunity. It will give us a rotation that we need for the number of games that we are going to play now against teams that have the shooting guard position very well covered”, explained the sporting director of Fuenlabrada, Ferrán López.

“In one-on-one he is very explosive, he will give us an energy that we lack now in the shooting guard position. And at a given moment, if there are foul problems in the point guards, he can also occupy that position. Physically he is very good, very explosive, the way we play fits him perfectly”, López added.
