After a short NBA stint, combo guard Gabriel Lundberg returned to Europe and joined Virtus Bologna, where he found two old friends in the locker room: Toko Shengelia and Daniel Hackett.

“It definitely helps to come into a new environment where you have similar faces who can show you what to expect just from a team, city, fans, and club environment, other than perspective. It has helped a lot. When they saw that I was in talks with the club they reached out to me, asking if it was true. Also, if it were to happen, what I should expect just by living here? So far it’s been really really nice,” Lundberg said.
