Christian
Eyenga
Auxilium Torino (Serie A) added to their roster 27-year old Congolese small forward Christian Eyenga (201-95kg-89, agency: SPORTlab Agency). He started the season at Banco di Srd (Serie A). Eyenga managed to play in three leagues this year. In 18 Serie A games he recorded 9.2ppg, 4.3rpg, 1.4apg and 1.0bpg. He also played 10 games in Euroleague where he averaged 10.8ppg, 4.0rpg, 2.2apg and 1.3spg. Eyenga also played 3 games in Eurocup where he averaged 9.7ppg, 2.3rpg, 1.7apg and 1.3spg. The most of last season he spent at Openjobmetis VA. In 21 Serie A games he averaged 12.7ppg, 5.9rpg, 1.4apg and 1.0bpg. A very spectacular season in his career as he was voted to Eurobasket.com All-Italian SerieA Honorable Mention and to the All-Star Game. Eyenga also spent pre-season at PGE Turow (TBL) in Polish league earlier that year.
The previous (13-14) season he played at Stelmet (TBL) in Polish league. Similarly like in the last season, the team also played in three different competitions (!!!) that year, and Eyenga was exposed to basketball on different levels. In 47 TBL games he averaged 10.2ppg, 4.1rpg, 1.7apg and 1.1spg in 2013-14 season. He helped them to make it to both league and supercup final after they ended regular season as second best team. Great season indeed as he was voted to Eurobasket.com All-Polish League Honorable Mention and to the All-Star Game. Eyenga also played 10 games in Euroleague where he averaged 9.2ppg, 4.7rpg and 1.5apg in 2013-14 season. He also played 6 games in Eurocup where he averaged 9.8ppg, 4.0rpg, 1.5apg and 1.0bpg in 2013-14 season. The most of previous (12-13) season Eyenga spent at Texas Legends in D-League. In 30 games he averaged 14.6ppg, 5.6rpg, 1.1apg and 1.9bpg in 2012-13 season. The other team he played that season for was Shanxi Zhongyu (CBA) in Chinese league. In 9 games he averaged impressive 18.8ppg, 5.3rpg and 3.0bpg in 2012-13 season.
In 2009 Eyenga was drafted by Cleveland Cavaliers (NBA) in first round (30th overall). He won NBA Pacific Division championship title in 2012. Eyenga represented DR Congo at the African Championships in Angola nine years ago.
He has played also professionally in Spain (FIATC Joventut and CB Prat), NBA (LA Lakers) and D-League (Los Angeles D-Fenders, Erie Bay Hawks and Canton Charge).
On Eyenga: (by Stevan Petrovic for NBADraft.net in 2009)
Possesses solid outside range out to 3pt (34% from 3PT). If he hits first few shots from the perimeter in a row he gets very confident and he is very difficult to guard ... Eyenga has good balance in his offensive game and almost the same number of outside shots as well as free-throws.
Eyenga is still a raw player offensively and still has trouble beating defenders off the dribble ... He is too predictable at times and drives to his right most of the time ... He still has lots of room to improve in these areas
