   An Unnecessarily Exhaustive Guide To The Euroleague Final Eight

It's a good thing that they are very deep, though, because heading into these quarter finals, both Augustine and starting small forward Victor Claver have suffered season ending injuries. Both are huge losses for the team; Claver brought the team athleticism, size, passing and shooting from the small forward spot that is not readily replaced, and Augustine, who had already missed much of the opening of the season with injury, was a valuable bench rebounder and occasional scorer. (Valencia have brought in 44 year old naturalised Spaniard Darryl Middleton, a man who left Baylor 23 years, and who was previously playing a bench role for LEB Gold team Girona. Middleton has played most of his career in Spain, and used to be one of the best players in it, still able to contribute now despite his more than advanced age. However, Middleton is not eligible for Euroleague play.)

Victor Claver (22nd pick, 2009)

- As mentioned in the Euroleague round-up, Claver is currently injured after breaking his foot in practice in late February. His absence is painfully obvious, because his replacements just don't have his talent. Like Freeland, Claver ticks every NBA box - size, athleticism, shot, passing, defense, high IQ productivity. There's a lot to like. Portland doesn't need Claver right now, but surely a team like Washington does.

   Where Are They Now, 2010; Part 14

- Victor Claver

Windpipe is still with Valencia, his hometown team and the team he's been with since he was 15. He's averaging 11.5 points, 6.0 rebounds and 2.0 assists per game in the Eurocup, alongside 9.4 points, 5.2 rebounds and 1.5 assists in the ACB. Good numbers all, with only one drawback; Claver is shooting a combined 26 of 87 from three point range between the two competitions, which is .298%.
