   Where Are They Now, 2010; Part 59
2010-04-21

We've covered most of the rest of Bilbao's roster in this list; Marko Banic, Axel Hervelle, Jerome Moiso, Damir Markota and Alex Mumbru, with Chris Warren still to come - but those are all big men. Bilbao are stacked up front, less so at guard. They have Latvian guard Janis Blums - who is basically the Baltic Eddie House with less swag - and Spanish veteran Javi Rodriguez - who is basically the Mediterranean Dogus Balbay with less swag - but not a whole lot after that. Warren plays quite a lot at guard, while 36 year old Spanish guard Fran "Paco" Vazquez comes into and chucks a few threes every now and then (51 3PT FGA to 7 2PT FGA and 2 FTA on the season), and third string point guard Javier Salgado plays most nights (as decreed by unofficial European basketball rules). But that's about it; even though there aren't many shooting guard options, Seibutis still averages only 14 minutes per game. And a remarkably inconsistent 14mpg it is at that, with a roughly equal number of starts as he does DNP-CD's, and almost as many twenty-plus minute outings (11) as single minute outings (14). It's been a strange year.

Note: Non-US teams that the player has played for are, unless stated otherwise, from the top division in that nation. If a league or division name is expressly stated, it's not the top division. The only exceptions to this are the rare occasions where no one league is said to be above the other, such as with the JBL/BJ League split in Japan.
