Xavier "Xavi" Rabaseda Bertrán (born 24 February 1989) is a Spanish professional basketball player who plays for Gran Canaria of the Liga ACB. He is a 1.98 m (6 ft 6 in) tall shooting guard-small forward.
After being formed in the youth teams of FC Barcelona, in 2007, Rabaseda joined CB Cornellà, a team affiliated with Barcelona, to play in the LEB Plata league. After two years, and achieving the promotion to the LEB Oro in 2009, he left Cornellà to join FC Barcelona Bàsquet's roster. Despite only playing limited minutes in three games, he was a part of the Barcelona team that won the Euroleague's 2009-10 season championship, at that season's Euroleague Final Four in Paris.
In 2010, Rabaseda joined Baloncesto Fuenlabrada on loan. Despite being signed for two years with the team of the Community of Madrid, his good performance (9 points and 3 rebounds per game) was enough to earn him a return to FC Barcelona Bàsquet.
