Movistar Estudiantes already has a quintet: Dos Anjos arrives

The Brazilian pivot (23 years old and 2.18 meters) comes from Retabet Bilbao. He was trained in the Madrid quarry and has experience in LEB.


And there are five. Movistar Estudiantes reported on Monday the signing of Felipe Dos Anjos. The Brazilian pivot (23 years and 2.18 meters) is the second reinforcement in the paint after the arrival of Nacho Martín. Javier Beirán, Johnny Dee and Lucas Faggiano are the other three acquisitions announced, for the moment, of the Ramireño club.

“It is clear that we are forming a strong team to fight for promotion, with players who will be key pieces. But from the beginning we have to pave our way to get there ... I am confident that we can achieve it ", declared Dos Anjos in words collected by the Study.

Declaration of Dos Anjos

Despite his youth, the Brazilian has lived a lifetime in Spain. Madrid took over his services from the Pinheiros of his native country when he was only 12 years old and in the white quarry he lifted the Junior Euroleague in 2015 as part of the Doncic generation. He never made his senior debut. He did a preseason in his junior years under Pablo Laso, but his path was different.In 2016 he began his pilgrimage through the LEB Oro: Oviedo, Melilla and Palencia, with small moments in ACB with Burgos (he debuted in ACB and four games) and Breogán between 2016 and 2020. But he had to wait until 2020 to find a hole in the elite with Retabet Bilbao Basket. He played 29 games and averaged 2.3 points and 2.8 rebounds in 9 minutes on the court.

“I come with the intention of gaining confidence and leadership in order to help the team. Looking at it from a sporting point of view, I think it is better to be in a lower league playing, with minutes on the court, than to be in a higher category but on the bench ”, continues Dos Anjos, center with good movements in the area and good ability to defend their peers and intimidate.

Student Status

Students continue working to complete a squad that will have three homegrown players (Adams Sola, Rubén Domínguez and Héctor Alderete) next season in a team led by the renewed Jota Cuspinera and his assistants, Alberto Lorenzo and Iñaki Martín. In addition, the continuity of two players who were part of Estudiantes last year, such as Nemanja Djurisic and Ewin Jackson, is expected.
