Matteo Spagnolo, a 19-year-old pearl from the Real Madrid academy, will play for Dolomiti Energia Trento next season. The Italian player, selected in position 50 by the Minnesota Timberwolves in the last NBA Draft, will continue his journey through Europe.

Trento, a team that is currently playing in the Eurocup, will help Spagnolo take a step forward in his career, consolidating himself in European basketball. The young point guard played last season with Vanoli Cremona, being awarded as the best young player in the entire competition.

As for his averages in Cremona, Spagnolo scored 12.2 points, grabbed 3.5 rebounds and distributed 2.6 assists in the 26 games played before holding the typical Draft Combine for those youngsters who want to reach the NBA.

Spagnolo suffered the relegation of his team to the second category of Italian basketball, so his arrival in Trento would serve as a showcase for Europe and Real Madrid itself.

The Italian player has a contract with the white team, waiting for an opportunity under the command of Chus Mateo. Meanwhile, Spagnolo continues to establish itself on the European scene.
