Bimbo Carmona - 22 games, 31.5 mpg, 20.2 ppg, 5.8 rpg, 1.5 apg, 2.0 fpg, 1.8 spg, 0.5 bpg, 55% FG, 29% 3PT, 70% FT
[...] In Maye's first game with the team, Mayaguez attempted 41 three pointers. (That's more than one a minute in a 40 minute game, maths fans.) They only hit 13; Maye accounted for six of those makes. By pairing Gale in the backcourt with with Alejandro Carmona - Puerto Rican national team mainstay and one time Piston, who scores heavily, but who scores inside the arc - the Indians hadn't given themselves enough outside shooting. Backup guard Paul Graham (formerly of Florida Atlantic) shot only 25% on three pointers for the season. Forwards Keenan Jourdan (6'8, Boston College, 31%) and Alex Galindo (6'6, Florida International, 32%) weren't much better. And while Ofoegbu was supposed to help with this, he didn't.

- Alejandro Carmona
Carmona appears to have established a rhythm method, playing in his native Puerto Rico during the summer months and in Mexico during the winter. Since it's currently the winter - for me, at least; God knows what it's like over there - Carmona is in Mexico playing for Fuerza Regia Monterrey. He is averaging 17.2 points and 0.7 assists per game in the LNBP, but hasn't been entirely consistent in doing so; his scoring outputs in his last 7 games before Christmas read 11, 8, 2, 43, 40, 12 and 14.
Carmona was a member of the Pistons training camp roster in 2005 after strong showings with the Puerto Rican national team. This is why you are to be interested in him.
