Nike International Junior Tournament London Scouting Reports
May 15, 2013
Alberto Abdale, 6-7, Shooting Guard, Joventut, Spain, 1995

Jonathan Givony

-Excellent size for a wing player at 6-7. Has long arms and a strong frame that should fill out nicely in time
-Phenomenal basketball IQ for a player his age
-Very good outside shooter. Shot 18/42 (43%) from beyond the arc in nine NIJT games. Can make shots with feet set or off the dribble. Great mechanics on jumper
-Brings ball up floor and initiates offense regularly. Knows how to get teammates involved
-Can create his own shot driving left or right. Good ball-handler with a solid first step. Can play some pick and roll
-Can post up smaller defenders
-Picks his spots wisely on the floor
-Very good instincts as a rebounder. Always in the mix for loose balls
-Very aware team defender. Puts a strong effort in. Comes up with plenty of steals

-Average athlete by NBA standards
-May struggle to create shots at the rim in the half-court against better defenders. Creates mostly to pull-up off the dribble. 48% 2P% at NIJT.
-Only got to the free throw line 13 times in 232 minutes at NIJT
-Lateral quickness appears average. Can he defend quicker small forwards at next level and beyond?

Outlook: Extremely intelligent and versatile all-around prospect. Doesn't blow you away on first glance but does a little bit of everything on the court and has great role-player potential. Combination of size, shooting and feel is hard to come by. Doesn't turn 18 until December so still has plenty of time to continue to improve.
