Derrick
Caracter
Uhud Medina (SBL) signed 29-year old American center Derrick Caracter (206-125kg-88, college: UTEP). He played last season at Echague in Argentinian LigaA. Caracter managed to play in three leagues in two countries last year. In 29 LigaA games he had 12.2ppg, 7.7rpg and 1.2apg. A very impressive season as he League Player of the Week (2 times). He also played that season for Hasharon (National League) in Israel where in 11 games he recorded 12.7ppg, 7.5rpg, 1.2apg, 1.4spg and 1.5bpg. Caracter also spent pre-season at BC Prievidza in Slovakian league that year. In two Basketball Champions League games he averaged 9.0ppg, 3.0rpg and 1.0spg.
In 2010 Caracter was drafted by Los Angeles Lakers (NBA) in second round (58th overall). The former Univ.of Texas at El Paso staris in his eighth season in pro basketball.
The list of the past achievements is quite long as among others his team won InterContinental Cup in 2015. Caracter was also voted NABC Division I All-District 11 1st Team back in 2010 at his college time.
Caracter is quite experienced player. He has played in ten different countries on four different continents (Europe, Asia, Latin America and of course North America). Caracter has played previously professionally in Brazil (Flamengo), Lithuania (P.Zvaigzdes), Philippines (Globalport), Poland, Puerto Rico, Taiwan (Yulon Luxgen), Uruguay (Atenas), Israel (Hapoel Ramat Gan Givataim), NBA G League (Salt Lake City Stars, Rio Grande Valley Vipers and Erie Bay Hawks) and Dominican Republic (Soles de Santo Domingo).
He could be described: (by Aran Smith for NBADraft.net in 2010)
Shows soft hands and can make catches in traffic ... Has good athleticism for a man his size and will surprise you with his bounce ... Can establish great position down low do to his brute strength and shows a mean streak at times and scores at will when motivated ... Skill level and feel for the game are actually at a high level. A solid passer and understands how to use pump fakes and his strength to score on longer opponents ...
Not always as active as he should be, especially down on the box ... Good but not great athlete, has good length, but not quite enough to completely compensate for being a little undersized
