Career highlights and awards

Ádám Hanga (Hungarian: Hanga Ádám, born 12 April 1989) is a Hungarian professional basketball player for FC Barcelona Lassa. He was drafted 59th overall by the San Antonio Spurs in the 2011 NBA draft.[1] Hanga won the EuroLeague Best Defender award in 2017.

Early life[edit]

Hanga was born to a Hungarian mother and an Equatoguinean father, who studied in Hungary that time. His father left the family when Ádám was 3 years old and he was brought up by his mother and maternal grandparents.[2]

Professional career[edit]

Hanga began his career with the Hungarian club, Albacomp, in 2006, at the age of 17, and stayed with the Székesfehérvár-based club until 2011. In June 2009, he was invited to the Adidas Eurocamp, an event that is held annually in Treviso, for top-flight players, aged between 18 and 21. After three days of training and scrimmages, he was ranked the sixth best non-U.S. player in his age group.[3] The 2010–11 season turned out to be his breakout year, as he dominated the Hungarian League.

In May 2011, he moved to the Spanish League, signing with Bàsquet Manresa.[4][5] The San Antonio Spurs selected Hanga with the 59th pick in the 2011 NBA draft.

In July 2013, Hanga signed a four-year deal with the Spanish club Baskonia.[6] In August 2014, he was loaned to the Italian League team Sidigas Avellino, for the 2014–15 season.[7] Hanga came back to Baskonia Vitoria-Gasteiz on May 11, 2015, for the final games of the 2014–15 ACB season, after finishing the Lega Basket season with Avellino.[8] On June 28, 2017, Hanga was registered by Baskonia for the right of first refusal.[9] On July 9, 2017, Hanga signed an offer sheet with FC Barcelona Lassa.[10] On July 12, 2017, Baskonia matched the offer sheet to Hanga, keeping Hanga in their roster.[11] On July 23, 2017, Hanga re-signed with Baskonia, through the 2019–20 season.[12][13] On August 22, 2017, Baskonia and FC Barcelona Lassa reached an agreement for the transfer of Hanga to the Catalan club.[14]
