Walter Tavares has been named in the All-EuroLeague First Team for the third time in his career and the second in a row. The Real Madrid center has averaged 10.9 points, 7.6 rebounds, 1.7 blocks and a PIR of 18.5 this season, with these statistics enough to make him one of the competition's most-voted players in the vote cast by fans, the media and the participating teams' coaches and captains.
Tavares has once again played a key role in guiding Real Madrid to the Final Four, in which the Cape Verde-born player will feature for a third time. In the Regular Season, he claimed more offensive rebounds than any other player (three per game), whilst he posted seven double-doubles and was named MVP in November. Tavares is joined in the line-up by James (Monaco), Mirotic (Barcelona), Larkin (Anadolu Efes) and Vezenkov (Olympiacos).
