Gydra stands out for his ability to score, his good shot from beyond the arc and helps him on the rebound. Despite being his first experience in LEB ORO, he will be a very interesting player for the La Mancha block scheme due to his ability to open the field.

Last season in the Portuguese first division he averaged 13.3 points in 30 games (45.3% in shots of 3 and 86.5% in free throws), 4.7 rebounds and 1.4 assists.

Arvydas Gydra, ready for LEB ORO After five seasons playing in Portugal, the 31-year-old has decided to accept the challenge of CB Almansa with AFANION, which with this addition already has 8 men in its squad for the 2021/2022 season .

In the words of our coach Rubén Perelló: “Arvydas is a 4 with great ease to score points. He has a great reading of the game and his threat in the outside shot (45% in three-point shots) will allow us to open the field and generate large spaces. It goes perfectly with Kevin Bercy because they do totally different things.

We are aware that he has not played in Spain, but he is a mature player with great experiences (31 years). His last 5 seasons he has been in Madeira and it was time to seek new challenges. We are very happy for his incorporation and for adding one more player to our squad “
