Former Cardinals

Reece Gaines And Taquan Dean Will Reunite In Italy

Former Cardinal’s Reece Gaines and Taquan Dean will be teammates once again, as both are set to play for Angelico Biella in Italy’s top-level Serie A league. Gaines and Dean played one season together at Louisville in 2002-03. For those who are not familiar with basketball in Europe, the Italy Seria A league is considered the European version of the NBA. Most American’s playing in the league have spent time with an NBA team.

Gaines, is coming off a year where he averaged 14 points and 4 assists for the Bakersfield Jam of the NBDL. Reece turned down offers to play in the summer league, so he could negotiate a deal with a European team.

Dean, spent last season back and forth between Spain and Greece. In 31 games, he averaged 12 points and shot 40% from behind the arc.
