Michael
Sweetney
Guaiqueries de Margarita (LPB) added to their roster 31-year old American forward Michael Sweetney (203-131kg-82, college: Georgetown). He was last seen playing for Bayamon in BSN. His stats read 13.1 points and 8.0 rebounds per appearance.
The previous (2011) summer he played at Cangrejeros (BSN) in Puerto Rico. In 36 games he recorded very impressive stats: 15.1ppg, 9.1rpg and 1.6apg. A very spectacular season in his career as he was voted to Latinbasket.com All-Puerto Rican BSN Honorable Mention. Sweetney also played at Bigua (LUB) in Uruguayan league that season. In 20 games that year he averaged impressive 17.8ppg, 10.0rpg (#5 in the league), 2.0apg and 1.1bpg. He helped them to win the regular season and make it to the final.
In 2003 Sweetney was drafted by New York Knicks (NBA) in first round (9th overall). The former Georgetown University staris in his tenth season in pro basketball.
The list of the past achievements is quite long as he was voted Latinbasket.com All-Puerto Rican BSN 1st Team back in 2010.
Sweetney was a member of USA U21 National Team in 2001.
He is quite experienced player. Sweetney has played also professionally in China (Foshan), Dominican Rep., NBA (Chicago Bulls), Dominican Republic (Metros) and D-League (Erie Bay Hawks).
On Sweetney: Can rebound and has great shooting touch. Mike catches the ball in traffic. He also has good scoring instincts in the post.
True size and athleticism are a bit of concern; great hands and knows how to score; an animal in the paint
