Until recently, basketball experts considered Víctor Sada to be a different kind of player. He is unusually versatile. Sada could be described as the intangible man.
His stats this season
Matches played: 42
Average points: 3.8

Average assists: 2.2

values. There are few players in the ACB that can move the ball on the paint like he can, and he
has a huge jump, which enables him to perform spectacular defensive actions and score seemingly
