    what happened to Fran Vasquez?

    Anyone know what happened to him after being a lottery pick?

    Please include more detail i.e Year he was suppose to be drafted, college, age, etc. because I seriously have no clue who that guy is.

    He is still under contract for his Euro team. It runs out after this season. The Magic could only contribute a tiny amount to buy him out, and he couldn't get out of it himself.

    Hopefully after this year he comes over. Not sure if it will happen, but I know it's finally a possibility. Last I checked, he was doing real well. MVP of the Copa Del Rey. He is 26 already though...

    He was the 11th overall pick by Orlando in the 2005 draft. He's from Spain, not college. He signed a contract over seas, and hasn't been able to get out of it.

    Kind of surprised you have no idea who he is...

    As far as I know, he was suppose to come in and give the Magic a potent front court with him and Dwight. It's been 5 years and I haven't seen or heard anything from this guy.

    I think the Magic still have his rights though.

    He is beasting in Europe and considered best Pf not in the Nba,

    Just won mvp of spanish kings cup.

    Has serious mental problems he has not wanted to play for team spain all those years even if h has always received an invitation.

    he is 25 right now.

    Barcelona has an option to extend his contract one moe year but they are thingking heavily in proposing him a new long term deal starting at 7 million TAx Free euros wich is about double the money magic can offer him under rookie scale.

    Bottomline he will probably never go into the nba,

    He'll likely be in Orlando by next season... We'll probably be looking to get rid of a couple of bigs in the offseason.

    Wich is a pity to orlando since he could be the PERFECT pf for them and allow Lewis to play his real spot at SF.

    he is a hard worker, tough defender and has soft touch and a good jumper.

    I know he's more of a PF, but maybe we move Gortat this off-season, and he replaces him. He definitely still has more upside than Marcin.

    Marcin = Defense

    Vasquez = All-Around

    Playing against Dwight in practise everyday should do wonders for Vasquez's game.

    there's nothing wrong with a 26 year old with years of experience playing professional basketball at a high level coming to a championship-calibur team next year, he'll integrate well

    My bad.
    And yeah, I remember him from draft day.

    ..I didn't really like his all-around game back then.
