Haukur Palsson surprisingly departed the Maryland basketball team over the summer to pursue a professional career in Europe. Palsson would have been a consistent rotation player this year, as his propensity to guard players larger than him would have come in handy against teams like UNC. He's currently playing for Manresa in the ACB. Draft Express has a stat comparison from his year at Maryland and his time so far with Manresa.
He's been playing less, with a poorer overall game. Unfortunately for the Hawk, it seems that his decision hasn't panned out as well as he'd hoped.
