Devin Sweetney (198 cm, St. Francis, PA ’10) is on his way to Marinos de Anzoategui (Venezuela-LPB). Sweetney will make his first appearance in Venezuela after playing this season with Liege (Belgium-Euromillions). In 33 games in the Euromillions, the 29-year-old swingman scored 13.4 ppg while shooting 34.9 percent from three. Not only does he shoot well from deep, but also can beat perimeter defenders off the dribble and finish with authority at the rim. His athletic prowess was on display in Belgium and should continue on his new team.
Sweetney will join Marinos in the middle of their LPB season. Currently, they are 18-17 which puts them in third place in the Eastern Conference. The shooting guard and small forward depth will only get better with Sweetney’s ability to play both effectively.
