In 31 games he recorded 12.9ppg, 7.5rpg and 1.0apg that season. A very impressive year as he was named to Eurobasket.com All-Spanish ACB 3rd Team. Freeland also played 14 games in Euroleague where he recorded 12.8ppg and 6.7rpg (#5 in the league). Quite impressive season as he was named to Eurobasket.com All-Euroleague Honorable Mention.
In 2006 he was drafted by Portland Trail Blazers (NBA) in first round (30th overall). Freeland's team made it to the ACB Semifinals in 2010.
