“I knew my profile was of interest to them,” he says on the official Roca team website. “My agent was in touch with the club and kept me informed of the progress of the discussions as they progressed. So I was aware of their interest throughout the previous exercise. I had been following my journey in the Euroleague closely, with such a fantastic performance with just one match failure in the Final Four. Next year with new signings in the The last days, we can see that the club has very big ambitions. And I want to be part of a team that works tirelessly, from a group that promotes a culture of winning, in a healthy environment.

Last year, they exceeded their expectations by earning the respect of the whole of Europe after an impressive streak against Olympiacos. With this off-season leader job, we clearly know where we want to be. »

After a successful season in Israel at Ironi Nahariya (17.7 points in 52.3% shooting success, 6.4 rebounds and 0.8 against in 33 minutes), he joined Ulm in Germany. There, he dominated (16 points at 50.6% and 6.1 rebounds in 32 minutes), with particularly peaking in the 30 ratings against JL Bourg, to the point of holding him in the perfect five for the EuroCup season.

Athletic 4-3, great in transition and with a strong shot (39.1% 3 success points in 4.2 attempts per game in 2021-2022), will discover the Euroleague for the first time in his career.
