Articles about Ricky Sanchez

March 15, 2012

Sanchez is a 6-foot-11 Puerto Rican international, drafted initially by the Blazers on the Nuggets behalf in 2005 and whose rights were later traded to the Sixers. He has spent his career in Latin America, and plays in the Puerto Rican BSN every season, although it hasn’t always been without incident. Sanchez is a big athletic forward with a good jumpshot, who was drafted on the pretense that he might go on to develop his game outside of his athleticism and jumpshot combination. He was pretty sure that he could do this. This, however, has not really happened. Playing for Bahia in the weak Argentinian league, he averages 13.0 points, 5.1 rebounds and 3.0 fouls in 30 minutes per game, taking over five threes per game. Near 7-foot three point specialists are intriguing, but the Grizzlies would be better served just bringing the recently waived Josh Davis back. Sanchez’s inclusion in the deal, therefore, is merely arbitrary.

Ricky Sanchez (35th pick, 2005)

- Sanchez was described at reasonable length in a post last June:

Sanchez is a Puerto Rican international, drafted initially by the Blazers on the Nuggets behalf, and whose rights were later traded to the Sixers. He has spent his career in Latin America, and plays in the BSN every season, although it hasn't always been without incident. Sanchez is a big athletic forward with a good jumpshot, who was drafted on the pretense that he might go on to develop his game outside of his athleticism and jumpshot combination. Unfortunately, he hasn't; Sanchez is shooting a very healthy 43% from three point range, but only 33% from two point range. Nevertheless, the Sixers could use a player of his type, so the slim chance remains. And even though he was drafted back in 2005, Sanchez is still only 22.


The slim chance is getting slimmer. He's now 23, which is still young, but he's not getting very far. It's pretty much all threes and fouls.

Chances of making the NBA expressed as an arbitrary percentage: 2.5%

Former Nuggets draft pick Sanchez, whose rights are now owned by the Sixers, started the year in Mexico. He averaged 9.3ppg and 3.7rpg for Halcones Rojos de Veracruz, who lost to the other Halcones team (Xalapa) in the LNPB Finals. After the Mexican season ended last month, Sanchez moved to his native Puerto Rico to join up with the Cangrejeros de Santurce. In 11 games he has averaged 14.5 points and 6.7 rebounds, shooting 36% from two point range and 44% from three, while taking 7 threes a game. He hasn't expanded his game much after being drafted, but he's sticking to what he does well.
