Former Rebel Signed in Europe

Former Tampa Bay Rebel's forward Spenser Mitchell was recently signed by Club Deportivo Estela Santander of Spain’s EBA. Mitchell is averaging 9.6 points and 8.0 rebounds during his time with Estela and has helped the team reach a record of 12-3. This is Mitchell’s second tour of duty in Europe as he previously played for Travelodge Swords Thunder in Ireland during the 2014-2015 season. Mitchell now joins a select group of former Tampa Bay Rebels who started their professional career in Tampa and continue to play internationally. Rebels Coach Fernando Rojas commented, “Spenser is a hard working player that will make the Estela front court better. His work ethic and team-oriented attitude is second to none, and we are glad to see him succeed at the next level.”
