Italian player arrival at Laboral Kutxa Baskonia is the fourth addition this season so far. Alfredo Salazar, our technical secretary and responsible for scouting describes Andrea Bargnani’s profile, a NBA draft pick No.1.
Rome-born player will bolster our team’s frontcourt, atlhough as Salazar says “he is a big man who is able to handle different situations.” However, Bargnani’s role at Baskonia will be as a center. “He’s basically playing as a five,” claims.
Our technical secretary adds the Italian likes “playing in front of the basket taking fast and accurate shots despite of his height. Bargnani is also able to play back of the rim to take advantage of his passing skills”.
One of the other ‘azzurro’ skills that Salazar stands out is his “IQ as well as his mobility and quickness on defense. His desire is really to play with us and hopefully we will help him give his best.” concludes Salazar.
