Baloncesto Sevilla continued building up its roster for its Eurocup return in the 2014-15 season by re-signing young guard Diego Gallardo to a two-year deal, promoting him to its first team. Gallardo (1.94 meters, 18 years old) was born in Sevilla and raised in the club since age 9, joining its first team in the 2013-14 pre-season. He helped the then-called Cajasol Sevilla win the Torneo Citta di Roma last season and shined at the Nike International Junior Tournament, averaging 15 points and 4 rebounds in 3 games. Gallardo has been a member of the Spanish U16 and U18 national teams.
