Considered one of the great talents of Spanish basketball, Dani Diez returns home to the Whites after his loan stint at Lagun Aro GBC. A product of the academy, he returns with the necessary experience so as to be an important cog in the current Real Madrid team. He is a versatile player who can score both from mid-range as well as from long-range, and he rebounds with great ease. Due to his tremendous athletic ability, he is a specialist in finishing counterattacks well on fast transitions.
The Madrid-born product reinforces the position of small forward in Pablo Laso's squad, the man who made him debut two years ago. Having played for the Spanish national side at all junior levels, winning the European Championship in two of these age-groups, he now faces an exciting season that marks his return home as he attempts to take the definite step towards success.
He has on many occasions declared himself to be a fan and admirer of a player who is now his team-mate, Sergio Llull. Although they don't play in the same position, Diez considers the point guard from Mahon a benchmark of success.
