The movements of Surne Bilbao Basket in the market announced it and the player himself has been in charge of confirming it this Monday. Rafa Luz will not be a ‘man in black’ next season. The Brazilian point guard has announced on his Twitter account that he and the club will go their separate ways after an exercise in which he has offered a remarkable performance.
“MY B! The time has come to separate our paths. He has been a true defender of your colors and enjoys a season full of emotions. Thank you for hosting and treating me and my family so well. One part of the family is from Bilbao. I wish you the best of luck”, highlighted the former player of the Biscayan team.
Rafa Luz arrived in Bilbao last summer from Nevezis to form a point guard pair with Jonathan Rousselle and his performance has been more than outstanding. His defensive effort, his dedication and his connection with the stands made him one of Álex Mumbrú’s favorite pieces. In his 33 games as ‘man in black’ He has averaged 6.1 points and 3.1 assists, with a remarkable 42.4% efficiency on the three-point shot.
At the end of the course, the club offered to renew the Brazilian, but in the end there was no agreement between the two parties. Rafa Luz will continue his career away from Bilbao and the Biscayan team will have Ludde Hakanson and Nikola Radicevic as the new couple of directors of the game for next year.
