Roger Grimau Gragera (born 14 July, 1978 in Barcelona) is a Spanish professional basketball player. He is currently playing with FC Barcelona of the Spanish ACB League.

Pro career

The Catalan shooting guard quickly moved to continue a family legacy in the world of basketball. Like his father before him, and as his two younger siblings would follow suit, Roger rose to the ranks as a professional basketball player.

At Lleida, he propelled his team to the ACB, the Spanish Basketball's premier division. He was the undoubted star of a young team which won promotion to the league. As well as being named an All-star in their promotion season, he also earned a move to his current club, AXA Winterthur Barcelona and with it, a call up to the national side with whom he won a gold medal in the Mediterranean Games of 2001.

Standing at 196cm tall, he has become a cult figure in the Barcelona set-up. Hugely popular with his growing and loyal fanbase, Grimau is widely regarded as not only the motivational guru on the roster, but also as a highly under-rated and influential player.
