BIOGRAPHY

Powerful forward who has played for FC Porto until the end of  this past season and also, in Bulgaria for BC Beroe. He came out from the prestigious Auburn University (Final Four NCAA 2018-19). In his first season, under coach Moncho Lopez, Purifoy played until December in Porto, leaving on a loan with the idea of playing more minutes in Vitoria Guimarães, a team with which Purifoy finished as one of the most outstanding players in Portugal with averages of almost 18 points, 8 rebounds, 2 assists and 2 steals per game. This great performance led Porto to renew the contract, returning to the team this season 22/23 with an objective: to stay in the team definitively. However, Porto changed the coach and the great performance of the team both in the local league (15W-1L) and in Europe (3W-0L in the 2nd round of FIBA Europe Cup, winning from 21 to French Cholet and 7 to German Chemnitz) have led the team to the idea of signing new players, leading again to the idea of a loan on a Purifoy who has played irregularly (7 points and 4 rebounds in 17′ in the local league, less minutes in FIBA Europe Cup but, by the way, he was a key player in an important win against Swiss Freiburg).

REPORT

In his style, he stands out mainly for his technical skills, physical ability, speed and strength for his size, being able to play both the positions of 3 and 4 with his 2.02 meters tall. He is able to create his points off the dribble, both in one-on-one or two-on-two situations with the ball and attacking the closeout or advantage situations due to his great first step. Very good skills to shoot from three (very quick mechanics, great range and he shoots after the dribble) and to find fouls and go to the FT line (+80% in his career). Very good passer, both to roll or as an open shooter. He´s good reading the game. In defense, he has very good ‘legs’ for lateral and side moves, he can change with small players in a very interesting way and in the post he has enough kilos to hold bigs. Good kid, hungry to play and, over all, a very interesting player profile.
