Joventut extends injured swingman Dawson
Joventut Badalona announced it has extended contract with swingman Shawn Dawson for another season, until June of 2021. Dawson (1.97 meters, 26 years old) has suffered an Achilles tendon rupture earlier this season in the 7DAYS EuroCup Regular Season Round 5 win over Cedevita Olimpija Ljubljana, and is set to miss this entire season. That was the first game back for Dawson after he recovered from an ACL injury he suffered last February. Before the injury last season, Dawson averaged 11.9 points and 4.2 rebounds in the Spanish League for Joventut. He previously played in his native Israel, firs with Maccabi Rishon LeZion where he started his professional career, then for a season with Bnei Hertzeliya.
