Marcelo Huertas is planning a move to the NBA next season and is determined to take a serious look at leaving Europe.
“This is the right time,” Huertas said. “If you look at NBA rosters, there are unbelievable starting point guards, but maybe not as many guys who can come off the bench able to run the team, score the ball – as well as being able to be a leader for young players. Those are things I know I’ll be able to bring with me.”
Huertas has played six seasons for FC Barcelona of the Spanish ACB, leading Barca to three consecutive Euroleague Final Four appearances. Huertas has been Brazil’s point guard in numerous Olympic Games, World Championships and FIBA America tournaments.
