Prospect Profile

Xavi Rabaseda

  • Full Name: Xavi Rabaseda
  • Position: Guard
  • Height/Weight: 6-6 / 209
  • Birthdate: February 24, 1989
  • College: Regal Barcelona (Spain)

Strengths:

   * Good size SG, looks the part
   * Above average athletically, good jumper
   * Strong kid
   * Attacks the rim, takes a hit, and draws fouls very well
   * Very good stroke and shooting range
   * Good ball handler and passer

Weaknesses:

Inconsistent 3-point shooter
Should shoot much better at foul line that his current 70 percent
 

NBA projection:
Because he's still not playing for Regal Barcelona, he could potentially leave Europe and join an NBA team if drafted and the right situation. Early second-round pick ability level.

2010-11 season:
Playing his first full season in the ACB with Fuenlabrada (just outside Madrid, Spain) on loan from European powerhouse Regal Barcelona. Barcelona features guards Ricky Rubio and Juan Carlos Navarro, making it difficult for Rabaseda to get much playing time.

Key statistics:
2010-11 Fuenlabrada –Spain ACB: 22 mpg, 8.7 ppg, 2.5 rpg. FG 51%, 3PT 33%, FT 68% 

Cool statistic:
In October 10th 2010, Xavi played his best game in ACB action so far. It was the third round of the Spanish regular season and Rabaseda led his team to the victory over Unicaja Malaga with 22 points. Still far from his best scoring marks as he netted 33 points in u20 Eurobasket 2009 opener against Russia. Spain won the bronze and Xavi made the all tournament team.

Reminds me of:
Sasha Pavlovic

What the Experts Say:
Ferran Lopez (Fuenlabrada GM)

"Young player with the technical and athletic tools to compete in the ACB. Can play both SG and SF position, he's good in transition and he's physically gifted to defend the best rival perimeter players in this level of the competition."

Current contract and team:
Rights owned by Regal Barcelona; he's now loaned to ACB competitor Fuenlabrada.
