Real Madrid brings back Yusta
Real Madrid added depth to its roster by inking small forward Santiago Yusta to a two-year deal, the club announced Monday. Yusta (2.00 meters, 20 years old) arrives from Rio Natura Monbus Obradoiro, where he averaged 5 points on 64.2% two-point shooting in 32 Spanish League games last season. Born in the Spanish capital, Yusta grew up with Madrid's junior team, making his first squad debut in the 2014-15 season. Yusta shined in the 2015 Euroleague Basketball ADIDAS NEXT GENERATION TOURNAMENT, averaging 12.6 points in five games to help Madrid win the title. He also helped Spain to win respective gold medals at the 2016 U20 European Championships and the 2013 U16 European Championships.
