For the second time in his career, point guard C.J. Rodríguez will defend the Capitanes CDMX uniform.
Following a stint in the Mexican Basketball League with Capitanes during the 2019 / 20 season, the Texas native is ready to make his NBA G-League debut.

Throughout his four years playing College Basketball, Rodríguez played a total of 56 games and averaged 14.34 points per contest along with four rebounds and two assists.
After graduating in 2016, Rodríguez played for Caballos de Coclé from Panama and also went through Deportivo Viedma from Argentina and Mineros de Zacatecas from Mexico.
During the 2021-2022 he played five games with Panama's Caballos de Coclé, averaging 18.4 points per contest, along with 6.4 rebounds, and 6.6 assists.
