Budinger talked about what he hopes to bring in the game of his new team, the discussions he held with Ricky Rubio before arriving in Spain and how Luis Scola’s previous presence in Baskonia inspires him. “Baskonia is high level organization. Luis Scola (played for Baskonia from 2000 to 2007) was a mentor to me and it excites me to follow in his footsteps. I also talked with Ricky Rubio who told me the differences between NBA and Europe especially how the game is more physical here.”
