May 17, 2012
Jonathan Givony

Strengths:

-Big bodied big man
-Solid frame and size
-Plays hard
-More explosive than he looks on first glance
-Very good outside shooter
-Made 42% of 3-pointers in Spain this season

Weaknesses:

-No post game
-Average defensive rebounder
-Lacks some lateral quickness to guard power forwards
-Rumored to be 2-3 years older than listed age
