Toros de Aragua (LPB) tabbed 36-year old Jordanian ex-international swingman Jimmy Baxter (196-96kg-80, college: S.Florida). He supposed to play at Penarol in Argentinian LigaA, but left the team in Dec.'15. In 22 games he averaged 14.0ppg, 3.3rpg, 2.0apg and 1.4spg this season. The most of last season Baxter spent at Sao Jose/Vinac (NBB) in Brazilian league. In 38 games he had 14.7ppg, 3.9rpg, 2.5apg and 1.0spg. He also spent pre-season at Obras Basket Buenos Aires (LigaA) in Argentina earlier that year.
The previous (13-14) season Baxter played at Reales (LNB) in Dominican Rep. league. In 15 games he had very impressive stats: 17.6ppg, 3.1rpg and 2.6apg in 2013-14 season. The other team he played shortly was Brasilia in Brazil. In three Liga Americas games he had 11.3ppg, 2.3rpg and 4.0apg in 2013-14 season. Another team Baxter played that season for was Quimsa (LigaA) in Argentinian league. In 20 games he had 12.9ppg, 3.1rpg and 1.5apg in 2013-14 season.
Among other achievements his team made it to the Argentinian Super 8 Cup final in 2014. Baxter received also Latinbasket.com Dominican Rep. LNB All-Imports Team award in 2014. He represented Jordan at the Asian Championships in Manila (Philippines) three years ago. His stats at that event were 9 games: Score-5 (14.1ppg), 3.6rpg, 3.9apg, FGP: 42.3%, 3PT: 31.0%, FT: 68.8%.
Baxter is a very experienced player. He has played also professionally in Belgium, France (JDA Dijon, Sluc Nancy and JL Bourg), Germany (Giessen 46ers), Greece (Ilysiakos), Iran (Petrochimi), Israel, Italy, Latvia, Portugal, Slovenia, Turkey, Venezuela (Guaiqueries) and Dominican Republic (Reales de La Vega).
It may be one of last seasons in his extensive career, which he may end at Toros.

Let's have closer look into His outlook: A former track and field All-American and Olympic hopeful in the high-jump from the University of South Florida (USF). Recipient of 2003 NCAA Award of Valor.

Gave a spectacular performance in the 2005 Treviso Summer League (Italy) attracting interest from all over Europe. Very talented playmaking guard/forward with complete package.
