Position: Forward

City: Catalunya, Spain

Year: 2023-24

Donovan Saine, 6’5″ American Forward from Hocking College NJCAA, signed in Catalunya, Spain for the 2023-24 season. Donovan Saine attended EuroProBasket’s European Summer League for a second time and was placed on a team in Spain a second time. After his first summer league in 2021 Donovan signed with a team in Extremadura, Spain. He led that team to move up a division and earned a contract for the following season in the higher division. However, he set his sights on the NBA G League receiving interest from a team and trying out. The NBA’s developmental league ended up not working out and Donovan was forced to sit out a year. The gap in his resume made it difficult to receive interest from professional teams overseas which prompted him to take action and attend this year’s European Summer League. He pulled up and showed out averaging 15.8 points, 8.8 rebounds, 2.3 assists, 1.8 steals in 24 mins per game with a 19 efficiency rating. A team visiting the games took immediate interest and made Donovan Saine an offer he couldn’t refuse.
