Joan Sastre has played a bit part for Cajasol Sevilla of the ACB in each of the past two seasons. A quality spot-up threat with a smooth release and nice range on his jump shot, Sastre isn't a jaw dropping athlete, but he's aggressive, has a solid skill level, and has proved that he's ready to take a step forward after averaging double-figures in the LEB-Silver for Qalat Cajasol last season.
Much like Czech prospect Tomas Satoransky, who we'll cover in depth in the not too distant future, Cajasol wants to maximize the amount of game action Sastre sees this season. He played 26 minutes in Cajasol's only Eurocup game of the 2011 campaign, and has the pedigree, size, and talent to be a quality contributor from the small forward spot in the ACB down the road. Whether he emerges as a legitimate rotation player this year or a NBA prospect down the road remains to be seen, as he lacks great strength and athleticism and would likely struggle badly defensively in his current state at the NBA level, but both Sastre and Satoransky are players to watch as they begin to see more playing time in Sevilla against high-level competition.
