VEF Riga signed American guard Quinn McDowell (1.94meters, 25 years old).
VEF Riga head coach Carlos Frade: "I'm very happy with having someone like Quinn, he is the type of competitor and person you want to build a team with. He can do a lot of things on the court, probably shooting is his most visible ability, but not the only one. He can defend and sacrifice himself when the team needs to. For me, his best asset is that he does whatever the team needs to compete and win. He played in a very competitive league like LEB Gold in Spain and is clearly building his career with his improvement. He will surprise a lot of people with his performance and his will to work."
Last season he played for Spanish second division team Palencia averging 28.2mpg, 11.8ppg, 4.0rpg, 1.2apg and +12.2 valuation.Previously he also played in Australia for Willetton Tigers and Springfield Armor in the NBA D-League. Before his pro career McDowell spent four years at William & Mary playing NCAA Divison 1 basketball.
