Saski Baskonia announced the signing of Puerto Rican point guard Andres Rodriguez(1.84-PG) via their official website. Rodriguez comes to fill the gap that the injury of Marcellinho Huertas left behind. Huertas is expected to be sidelined for about a month.
Rodriguez might be staying in Baskonia only for a month but to him is an opportunity to sign at a higher level than he has been playing so far. He had other offers from Spain and also from Ukraine and Poland but he preferred to go with Baskonia. Last season he played for BC Donetsk in Ukraine, averaging 10.8 points 4 rebounds and 6.4 assists in 37 games in the Ukrainian League. He has played for Turow in Poland and Olimpija in Slovenia.
