Cangrejeros de Santurce (BSN) strengthened their roster with addition of experienced 34-year old American 203cm forward Dante Cunningham, college: Villanova. The last time (19-20) he played at Fujian Sturgeons in Chinese CBA league. Cunningham missed last season due to covid-19 restrictions and had longer break from professional basketball.
In 2009 he was drafted by Portland Trail Blazers (NBA) in second round (33rd overall). He attended Villanova University and it will be his 13th (hopefully lucky) season in pro basketball.
He has played also professionally for other NBA teams like New Orleans Pelicans, Brooklyn Nets, San Antonio Spurs, Minnesota Timberwolves and Memphis Grizzlies.

The standard bearer for development over the length of a collegiate career. His work ethic and desire to improve cannot be questioned .. Cunningham transformed himself from a scrappy, hustle, workingmans player into a polished offensive player and top scoring option on a final four team.
Doesnt possess the offensive skill set to play on the wing .. His ball handling is subpar for a wing player .. Needs to add more variety to his face up game.
