Get to know Spanish basketball, culture and competition. He is a lethal player in the outside shot, from where he does not fall below 40%, averaging more than ten points per game. He has also added to his repertoire the ability to attack with the ball, play with direct blocks and assist teammates. Their presence will generate spaces for other teammates and will provide scoring and danger from the perimeter. If we add to all that that he is a good defender, we are talking about an ideal profile for what we were looking for ”.
