Andy Rautins Es El Hijo De Leo Rautins

I think we all assumed that former Syracuse Orange Andy Rautins would end up playing professional basketball in Spain.

No? You didn't? Well, guess what, he is playing basketball in Spain now. What now, huh?

Andy is off to play for Lucentum Alicante (website) where he joins former Seton Hall shootaholic Jeremy Hazell. Let's translate the official news story (as exactly as possible) to see what's going on.

The guard would come from the NBA where he had little role with New York Knicks. Follow the footsteps of his father who passed through Mayoral Maristas and Coren Mayoral Ourense

Sadly, Andy did indeed have little role with the Knicks. And yes, Leo played quite a few years in Spain and all over Europe.

Andy Rautins could soon land in the ACB league. The Canadian escort of 1.93 meters b. 1986 is the player best positioned to catch Vidorreta Txus orders and part of the surprise team of the ACB.

I know times were tough for NBA fringe players like Andy but the fact that he had to resort to escorting is disconcerting. Especially in Canada. As for the ACB, that would be the Asociación de Clubs de Baloncesto.

Formed in Syracuse, in which he averaged 12.1 points senior year, 3.4 rebounds, 4.9 assists and 2 steals in 40.7% of accuracy in triples, was chosen in the draft 2010 by New York Knicks ranked 38 in the second round. With the team only played 5 games Madison last season. Few dates ago, after being acquired by the Mavericks as part of the transfer that led to Tyson Chandler to the Knicks franchise was terminated by the presiding Mark Cuban.

It's true, Andy Rautins was formed in lab buried deep beneath Link Hall. He was created by using Leo Rautins' DNA, Grade A maple syrup, velociraptor scales and a heaping glop of Axe hair gel.

Not a day goes by that someone doesn't say how much they remember Andy's accuracy in triples. I'm so sick of hearing about his triples accuracy, to be honest.

He participated with his selection in the past, averaging 11.5 points FIBA Americas, 2.6 rebounds, 1.3 assists and 1.1 steals with spectacular rates: 52.9% shooting from the field, 39.2% from three and 87.5% on free throws.

I think we can all agree that when he came to Andy Rautins, he always participated. Especially in the past.

Adiós, Andy. Buena suerte.
