20 Eriksson

Marcus Eriksson

Forward

A forward with a great perimeter shot who is also a solid rebounder

Marcus Eriksson came to FC Barcelona in 2011, joining from Manresa. In 2011/12 he played in the Liga Adecco Plata with Barça B,  averaging 15.2 points and in 2012/13 he played in the Liga Adecco Oro where he scored 13.2 points per game with an extraordinary 50% from beyond the three-point arc.

After showing steady improvement he was loaned back to Manresa for the season 2013/14. The following season he returned to FC Barcelona, only to suffer a serious knee injury early in the campaign in a league game against Laboral Kutxa at the Palau. That setback kept him out for the rest of the season and he returned in the season 2015/16, the Swede gaining more and more playing time as the campaign progressed. 

 

Technical profile

Eriksson is a small forward who is lights out from the field. He is highly accurate from three-point territory and is great at freeing himself up to get open looks at the basket. Eriksson also does a solid job on the defensive boards.
