Valencia Basket inks forward Sastre
Three-time 7DAYS EuroCup champion Valencia Basket announced the arrival of small forward Joan Sastre, who inked a two-year deal with an option for another season on Friday. Sastre (2.00 meters, 24 years old) arrives from CAI Zaragoza, where he averaged 9.4 points on 46.8% three-point shooting and 3.4 rebounds in 16 EuroCup games last season. He started his career with Basquet Mallorca and also played for Cajasol Sevilla and two of its vinculated teams - Ecija Cajasol Sevilla and Qalat Cajasol Sevilla - before joining CAI in 2014. Sastre helped Cajasol reach the EuroCup final in 2011. Sastre has amassed 332 points and 140 rebounds in 58 EuroCup career games with Cajasol and CAI. He has also been a member of the Spanish national team. Sastre helped Spain win a gold medal at the 2011 U20 European Championships and a bronze one at the 2010 U20 European Championships.
