They have Latvian guard Janis Blums - who is basically the Baltic Eddie House with less swag - and Spanish veteran Javi Rodriguez - who is basically the Mediterranean Dogus Balbay with less swag - but not a whole lot after that. Warren plays quite a lot at guard, while 36 year old Spanish guard Fran "Paco" Vazquez comes into and chucks a few threes every now and then (51 3PT FGA to 7 2PT FGA and 2 FTA on the season), and third string point guard Javier Salgado plays most nights (as decreed by unofficial European basketball rules).
