Derrick
Byars
Libertad Sunchales (LigaA) landed 32-year old American (has also Ivorian passport) swingman Derrick Byars (201-100kg-84, college: Vanderbilt, agency: You First). He supposed to play at Maccabi Rishon in Israeli Winner League, but was released by the team in Oct.'15. But in two Winner League games he did not score anything and had only 1 rebound and 2 assists. The last season Byars played at Baloncesto Sevilla (Liga Endesa) in Spanish league. In 34 games he averaged 7.9ppg and 3.0rpg. He also played 16 games in Eurocup where he had 9.0ppg, 3.0rpg, 1.3apg and 1.1spg.
The previous (13-14) season Byars played at Belfius Mons-Hainaut (Scooore League) in Belgium. In 10 games he had 10.0ppg and 3.2rpg in 2013-14 season. He helped them to end the regular season as a second best team in the league. They also advanced to the league semifinals. Byars also played at Bakersfield Jam in D-League earlier that season. In 14 games he had 12.4ppg, 4.8rpg and 1.9apg in 2013-14 season. He also spent pre-season at Krasny Oktyabr (VTB) in Russian league earlier that year. Byars was also tried-out by the Grizzlies in NBA.
In 2007 he was drafted by Portland Trail Blazers (NBA) in second round (42nd overall). The former Vanderbilt University standoutis in his ninth season in pro basketball.
Among other achievements his team won German Bundesliga Cup in 2013. Byars received also Gatorade All-D-League Honorable Mention award back in 2011.
He is a very experienced player. Byars has played also professionally in France (Cholet Basket), Greece (Panellinios), Puerto Rico (Caciques), Venezuela (Guaiqueries) and NBA (Chicago Bulls, Miami Heat, San Antonio Spurs and Memphis Grizzlies).
Let's have closer look into His outlook: (by Matthew Maurer for NBADraft.net in 2007)
Complete player with good lateral quickness and athleticism. Defensively Byars does a great job staying in front of his man. Fundamentally there are few guards in the draft that have his array of tools. Plays the game with a good level of moxie and toughness. Excellent ball handler who has played point guard several times during his collegiate career
Shot selection at times can be questionable. Would benefit his game if he utilized the mid-range shot more
