Averaged 7.9 ppg and 2.3 apg as a member of UCAM Murcia in Spain`s ACB League...Started playing professionally at the age of 16, playing for DKV Joventut from 2007-11...A member of the Spanish National Team that won the gold medal at the FIBA Europe Under-20 Championship in 2011, where he averaged a tournament-high 5.1 apg...A pass-first point guard with great leadership skills and a high basketball IQ...Natural playmaking ability and terrific instincts as a passer...Attacks the basket and is strong in transition...Quick hands and feet make him a serviceable on-the-ball defender...Great work ethic...Though a solid athlete by European standards, lags behind most of his NBA contemporaries at the point guard position in terms of quickness and athleticism...A below- average jump-shooter...Needs to put on more muscle.
