In these two seasons, Rivero has been a key part of the successes of San Pablo, who have won two editions of the FIBA Champions League and the Intercontinental. In his two seasons in the ACB, he has averaged 11 points and 5 rebounds with an average of 22 minutes on the court.
Early in the morning, Burgos announced Rivero’s departure after the payment of a termination clause that Efe learned amounted to about 150,000 euros.
