Tremmell Darden is one of the most complete forwards on the European basketball scene. He stands out for his physical ability, which means that he is good in defense and on rebounds, and for his good field goal percentage. The American who stands 1.94 meters tall comes to Real Madrid from Zalgiris Kaunas to reinforce the team on the outside in the Endesa League, a competition that already has experience in following his period with Unicaja Malaga last season.
The Californian will provide strength and talent to the perimeter for the group coached by Pablo Laso. He has the profile of a player that Real Madrid have not had before and, with his powerful physique, he can defend against forwards who have a few centimeters height advantage over him. Also, the rebound is going well for him, as is reflected in his stats with Zalgiris, where he was the team’s second best player in this aspect of the game in the Euroleague. On offense, Laso will have available a very reliable player with regards to his shooting (66.2% field goals, third best in European competition), and he likes to get up to the basket and play close in.
