Alfredo Salazar, technical secretary of Laboral Kutxa Baskonia comments the fifth signing Shane Larkin’s profile.
“He was 20 when he was first-round drafted with pick #18 in 2013 posting an average of 23 minutes per game the last two seasons which is high-standard. Also, Salazar reflects on Larkin’s velocity.
“He is a fast guard who crosses-over well on one-on-one, handling the pace and speeding up to drive to the basket. Larkin also takes control on 2×2, assisting and passing the ball to his teammates. He uses short range shots too.” said.
“Shane Larkin is not afraid of penetrating as his left ball-handling makes him a real threat. To me his game is as great as his dribbling skills are. He’s still 23 and he is likely to improve a lot from this season on.” ends.
