At 32 years of age, Gabriel is making his senior team debut at a major event. The Caracas, Venezuela native played in Spain's U18-U20 national teams from 1998 to 2001 and earned one appearance for Spain's top side in the Qualification Round for EuroBasket 2003, playing against Belgium. The 2.07m center was needed for the Slovenia tournament after both Pau Gasol and Serge Ibaka pulled out. He will likely be called upon to rest Marc Gasol at the center position. Gabriel proved this season that he can still play in the blocks with a strong season at Estudiantes, finishing sixth in the league in scoring. He also displayed range extending beyond the three-point line. Gabriel also has a history with Spanish coach Juan Orenga, playing together with the new coach in 1999-00 at Unicaja Malaga.
