A rather eccentric destiny for Juan Toscano-Anderson, at least as eccentric as this word, eccentric, which we see as truly eccentric… in short. You understand, it is difficult to wake up this Sunday morning, but enough courage to give you this important information: Juan Toscano-Anderson will play in Mexico next season.
Soles of Mexicali, Buccaneers of La Guaira, Fuerza Regia de Monterrey.
You see, the connection between Juan Toscano-Anderson and Mexico is clear, JTA even has dual nationality. Landed in the NBA through the Santa Cruz Warriors, the winger is best known for being part of Golden State’s NBA roster during the Dubs’ last title in 2022.
An all-around player, tenacious to a fault and capable of stepping aside for the benefit of the stars, he is nevertheless one of those guys, like Gary Payton II, who is even more useful when the opportunity comes. the playoffs. No statistical craziness (4 points on average in 13 minutes) but a well-defined role that will later allow him his chance not far from the bay, with the Lakers. A transplant that doesn’t take, a few matches and it goes to the Jazz through a trade, and now fifteen months after his JTA championship ring… left for a tour of the G League, where it all began for him.
where? On the side of Mexico City apparently, for the return to sources that are more logical geographically than sportingly, he who still seems to be only 29 years old who has some good skills to offer to the NBA and who will therefore play for one of the two only. G League teams are never affiliated with an NBA franchise.
Juan Toscano-Anderson may find the NBA again, but for now it’s where he (and Gignac) came from, just to play basketball with a smile and without the pressure of being in the NBA. A lifestyle choice more than a basketball choice but in any case it was her choice, pointed out Evelyne Thomas.
