Dontaye Draper - EuroBasket 2013 Profile
Team 2012-13: Real Madrid (Spain-ACB)
Career: Charleston (USA-NCAA, 2003-07); Sydney Kings (Australia-NBL, 2007-08); Hyeres Toulon (France-Pro A, 2008); Base BC Oostende (Belgium-D1, 2008-09); Prima Veroli (Italy-LegaDue, 2009-10); Cedevita Zagreb (Croatia-A1, 2010-12); Real Madrid (Spain-ACB, 2012-13)

The American-born point guard will once again put on a jersey of his adopted country after a season during which he helped Real Madrid win the Spanish title and reach the Euroleague final. Draper is not the biggest of guards, but a speedster and a pass-happy playmaker, who can also be a great threat either from downtown, or penetrating to the basket. However, his defensive skills and pressure on the ball that can create turnovers and fast break opportunities is what can make a difference for Croatia. After a career-season in 2011 that led him to a Eurocup MVP award, Draper's inclusion on the national team roster for EuroBasket in Lithuania caused a lot of controversy, as did Croatia's early elimination. But he led the team with seven assists-per-game, proving he belongs.
