Villeurbanne added Angel Vassallo

ASVEL Villeurbanne signed Angel D. Vassallo (198-G/F-86, college: Virginia Tech) for the next season.

The 24-year shooting guard / small forward arrives to ASVEL from Puerto Rican team Galitos de Isabela. He joined them in May this year, after he finished the season with Paris-Levallois. It was the first overseas job for Vassallo, who demonstrated great performance in Pro A. He appeared in 31 games averaging 17.8 points, 4.3 rebounds, 2.6 assists and 1.1 steals. Vassallo ended the contest as No.4 in scoring. His season-high was 29 points against Rouen (twice) and Orleans. It seems he showed enough to earn a deal with the former French champion, who will play in Euroleague qualifications next season.

Angel D. Vassallo is a product of Virginia Tech University. He spent four years there and graduated in 2009. In his senior season Vassallo had 19.1 ppg, 6.2 rpg and 2.6 apg in 34 games. He played at the Portsmouth Invitational Tournament after that. However, none of the NBA teams was interested to offer him a deal. Vassallo joined Criollos de Caguas after that for 2009 BSN season in Puerto Rico.

Daniel Vassallo is a member of Puerto Rican National Team since last summer. He appeared at the FIBA Americas Championship in San Juan last year averaging 7.3 points and 3.4 rebounds for 10 games. He helped Puerto Rico to win the Silver medal.
