According to Spanish newspaper “El Mundo“, Real Madrid has reached an agreement with Walter Tavares, 25-year old 2.20m center, for the next three years.

His arrival is due to the fact that Kuzmic will miss the entire season due to a torn ligament in his left knee. Gustavo Ayon’s recent injury also plays a big role in the signing as it will keep him out of the courts for four months.

Even though the former player of Gran Canaria wanted to speed up his options to play in the NBA, he decided to go ahead and sign with Madrid’s team. Real wants him to have an important role in the team, for the short-term as injuries have affected the team negatively. Tavares has played in the NBA with the Atlanta Hawks and also the G-League with the 905 Raptors.
