Rodrigo De La Fuente Benetton Treviso has made a pair of roster moves less than a week before its ULEB Cup debut. Benetton has reached an agreement swingman Rodrigo De La Fuente for the remainder of the season. De La Fuente (200, 30), who practiced with the team this summer, replaces DerMarr Johnson, who was waived earlier in the day. De La Fuente arrives from AXA FC Barcelona, where he spent the last nine seasons. He was the team captain when Barcelona won its only Euroleague title in 2003. De La Fuente, an accomplished defensive player, has also helped Barcelona to win five Spanish League titles and two Spanish King's Cup titles, as well as lifting the 1999 Korac Cup and reaching the 2006 Euroleague Final Four.
