Santa Cruz de Tenerife, Aug 01 (EFE) .- The Iberostar Tenerife has announced this Saturday the signing of the Tenerife forward Sergio Rodríguez, 26 years old and 2.04 meters, who returns to the Canarian club with which he already debuted in the Endesa League in the 2013 season /2014.
In a note, Iberostar Tenerife has indicated that the contract signed by both parties has a duration of one year with the option of departure by both parties during the course.
The player, who comes from RETAbet Bilbao Basket, was trained at CB San Isidro de La Orotava and in the 2011-2012 season he joined the Aurinegro team and since then he combined training with the first team and the linked San Isidro and RC EBA League Nautical.
The forward made his debut with the Canarian squad the year of his promotion to the ACB and went on to play ten black-and-white matches in the ACB, from there he signed for Ávila de LEB Plata (14-15), for Navarra (15- 16), the Tau Castelló (16-17), Huesca (17-18) and Ourense (18-19).
Last season he was an important part of the RETAbet Bilbao Basket, one of the revelations of the Endesa League and closed the course with an average of 4.2 points and 2.7 rebounds for 4.8 average rating.
For the club’s sports director, Aniano Cabrera, the club “is very happy to be able to recover a Tenerife player with experience in the ACB.”
This is an athlete who “after his training cycle in San Isidro, with the Nautical and with us made the leap to the Peninsula to mature and continue training.”
“This is a boy who has been very responsible in his work to get to the ACB and, of course, we are proud that Rodríguez is part of our project again,” said Cabrera.
“He comes with a contract for this season that contemplates the possibility of departure by both parties, once we have Santi Yusta recovered, but our intention is for him to complete the entire season,” he added.
“He is a forward of more than two meters who can play in positions three and four and that in the last year has shown that he can help a lot”, said Cabrera, who believes that Rodríguez “will adapt to the needs of the team” .
