Darwin Matos
Barquisimeto, Venezuela.- Gaiteros del Zulia performed yet another trade involving Venezuelan talent in the preseason market for the 2017 edition of Liga Profesional (LPB), by sending SF Kevin Nino to Bucaneros de La Guaira and getting swingman Darwin Matos (197-G/F-85) in return.

Matos is a 31 year-old sharp shooter, 1.97m tall, with previous LPB experience in teams such as Cocodrilos de Caracas, Guaros de Lara and Bucaneros de La Guaira. He also played for Mantarrayas de La Guaira, Lanceros de Cojedes, Aduaneros de Carabobo, Furreros del Zulia and Estudiantes de Guarico in Venezuela's LNB. He's always been used coming off the bench in most teams.

Meanwhile, Nino had become a primary weapon in Zulia's second unit in the past couple of seasons after beginning his career with Cocodrilos de Caracas. He also played for Waraos de Tucupita, Broncos de Caracas and Atleticos de Caracas in Venezuela's LNB.

Gaiteros del Zulia also confirmed the hiring of Freddy Chavier as its new Operations Manager.

So far, Zulia has completed four trades. Elvis Baez (189-PG-89) went to Guaros de Lara for Robert Yriarte (201-F-89) and Daniel Macuare (190-F-84), Mike Keeling (185-G-95, college: Bluefield) is now a player of Trotamundos de Carabobo in exchange for Hernan Salcedo (198-F-80), Yorbis Umbria (203-F-84) will play for Gigantes de Guayana and Carlos Rodriguez (206-C-89) is now in Maracaibo and now Matos is arriving for Nino.
