Another member of the title-winning Den Bosch side in 2015, de Pagter will be fighting for a spot in the final 12 and the rotation of the Orange Lions. Not a flashy offensive player, the power forward gets his fair share of rebounds and is a decent passer for an inside player. Interestingly, de Pagter has not been a standout at youth-level but first entered the scene at the U20 European Championship in a back-up role. Since then he has built a reputation for himself that earned him a spot on the national team. His experience from last summer and three seasons of EuroChallenge could be a valuable asset as well, since he knows what will be asked of him.
