Fuenlabrada gets Diagne from Barcelona on loan

Montakit Fuenlabrada will have a familiar face in the paint this season after getting big man Moussa Diagne on loan from FC Barcelona Lassa. Diagne (2.11 meters, 22 years old) played briefly in the Turkish Airlines Euroleague for Barcelona last season and averaged 1.5 points and 1.7 rebounds in 13 Spanish League appearances. He returns to a team with whom he began his professional career in 2012 and played a total of three seasons. In his final campaign there, Diagne posted 4.3 points and 4 rebounds in 34 appearances.

"I return to a team that is in my heart," Diagne said. "It was my first team as a professional. I learned a lot and improved my game. This season I want to give back to the club and to the fans all I got from them. I come to Fuenlabrada with the goal of helping the team to win and compete well; we can go as far as possible in the Endesa League and EuroCup."
