    Default Wiltjer signs with Unicaja Malaga in Spain

    Wiltjer averaged 7.6 points and 3 rebounds in 14.7 minutes per game with Olympiacos. He made nearly 46 percent beyond the 3-point line and 81 percent at the free-throw line.

    Domas' first team!



    Good luck to Kyle, I think he'll be a good addition to the Spanish team.

    Hopefully this is a better fit for Kyle than Olympiacos.
    Oly was such a defensively focused team it was easy to see Kyle was going to have a tough time staying on the floor. To the surprise of no one here I think Kyle showed he can be a potent offensive weapon at the highest European levels, but his defense is still bad enough that teams focus specifically on him and attack him relentlessly. Oly's system just couldn't afford him on the floor for long stretches.

    I think he better fit on a team where is is a key component in their offense and they can build a team and defensive systems with Kyle's limitations in mind. Oly wasn't set up to do that for what was always going to be a rotational player. If he is signed to be a focal point of Unicaja's offense they should do a better job at hiding his weaknesses and exploiting his offensive strengths.
