Team 2012-13: Portland Trailblazers (USA-NBA)
Career: Pamesa Valencia (youth teams); Valencia Basket (Spain-ACB, 2006-12); Portland Trailblazers (USA-NBA, 2012-13)
Three years after being selected near the end of the first round of the 2009 NBA Draft, Claver finally left Valencia to try his hand in the NBA with Portland. The 24-year-old failed to really shine until given a chance in the final nine-game stretch in April, in which he averaged 28 minutes, 7.4 points, 3.1 rebounds, 1.9 assists and 0.6 steals while shooting 35% from long range. That will give Claver additional confidence coming into the Slovenia tournament, his fifth major event for Spain. Having proven he can be a leader at the club level, Claver definitely has the ability to take on a much bigger role in the Spanish national team and with a couple of big names out, he just might get his chance as well.
