HLA Alicante Strengthens Roster with Signing of Canarian Player Miguel Serrano
Background on Miguel Serrano
The Lucentina squad of HLA Alicante has recently signed talented Canarian player Miguel Serrano from Gran Canaria. Standing tall at 204cm, Serrano joins Alicante after developing his basketball skills in the youth categories of CB Gran Canaria. He debuted professionally in the Endesa League and Eurocup with the Canarian club.
Serrano has also demonstrated his talents by representing the Spanish national team in various international tournaments at the youth level. Over 26 games played, he averaged 9 points and 3.9 rebounds in 24 minutes per game.
Versatility and Energy to Bolster Alicante
“Miguel Serrano, a 22-year-old player nurtured in the lower categories of Gran Canaria, possesses the versatility to excel at both the small forward and power forward positions,” stated Asier Alonso, head coach of HLA Alicante.
Alonso emphasized Serrano’s value to the team: “His athleticism will provide us with much-needed energy and tenacity on defense, while his versatility significantly expands our offensive strategies.”
With his impressive 204cm frame, Serrano provides significant size at the forward positions. His time developing in the Gran Canaria system has molded him into a versatile contributor capable of impacting the game on both ends of the floor. Serrano’s energetic style of play and instincts for rebounding will give Alicante a significant boost.

Fills Need for Alicante
The addition of Serrano addresses Alicante’s need for depth and flexibility at the forward spots. With the ability to slide between the 3 and 4 positions, Serrano gives the coaching staff more lineup options. His size, skill, and motor combination make him an exciting young prospect.
Additional Frontcourt Depth
Along with veterans like Edu Duran and Pedro Llompart, Serrano reinforces Alicante’s frontcourt. A young, high-upside player like Serrano provides more rotation flexibility up front. His development will be essential for Alicante’s future success.
Optimism Surrounding Serrano’s Potential
While still early in his career, the potential Serrano has displayed with Gran Canaria and Spanish youth teams generates optimism for his future in Alicante. Alonso and the Lucentina squad will aim to maximize this potential and mold Serrano into a cornerstone player in the future.
Opportunities for Growth
Under the tutelage of the experienced Alicante coaching staff, Serrano will have ample opportunities to refine his game. Focus areas include polishing his perimeter skills and adding strength. If Serrano can realize his upside, he could become an impact player in the ACB.
Adding Miguel Serrano helps solidify HLA Alicante’s frontcourt rotation with energy, size, and flexibility. The young Canarian’s high motor and developing skill set make him a valuable acquisition.
