UCAM Murcia adds scoring ace Baron
UCAM Murcia added fire power to its roster weeks ahead of its 7DAYS EuroCUp debut by inking scoring machine Billy Baron, who inked a deal with his new team on Thursday. Baron (1.88 meters, 25 years old) arrives from Proximus Spirou Charleroi and was the 2015-16 EuroCup regular season second-best top scorer, averaging 20.7 points in 10 games and only trailing Loukas Mavrokefalidis of AEK Athens (24.2 ppg.). Baron hit 45.9% of his three-point shots, was also deadly from the foul line (84.6%) and averaged 3.6 rebounds and 4.2 assists, too. He joined Charleroi from Lietuvos Rytas Vilnius, where he averaged 6.1 points in 17 EuroCup games in the 2014-15 season, his first as a professional baskeball player. He helped Rytas reach the Lithuanian League finals. His brother Jimmy is a EuroCup champion with Lokomotiv Kuban Krasnodar in 2013. Both Jimmy and Billy Baron played together in Charleroi last season.
