Daniel Ghassemi, 6’4″ Canadian Guard, signed his first basketball contract in Peñíscola, Spain for the 2022-23 season. Daniel has experience playing with the Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu CEGEP Division 2 University team in his hometown of Canada. During his time there he injured his meniscus which sidetracked his basketball career. Two years later he decided he wanted to pursue a basketball career and received information about EuroProBasket from his sister. He made the investment in his future and attended the program in September 2022. Within just 3 weeks of his Euro Professional Program he was offered a contract with a team in Peñíscola, Spain. Daniel Ghassemi had this to say about his time at EuroProBasket: “When I arrived at EuroPro, I was amazed by the facility. I loved how professional the coaches are; they taught how to play European style of basketball. Brad has found me an opportunity to prove my self in Europe and I will not waste it… I think I can make it to high level professionally in Europe, and will put work in everyday to achieve it. I recommend EuroProBasket to anybody coming overseas that wants a taste of European basketball, if you come ready mentally and physically, chances are they will find you an opportunity.” – Daniel Ghassemi
