2015 FIBA U19 World Championship Scouting Reports: Small Forwards
July 9, 2015

Jonathan Givony

-Sports a chiseled frame at 232 pounds, and an incredibly long 7-2 wingspan. Big hands
-Fluid and mobile athlete
-Very talented offensive player. Can do a little bit of everything
- Has improved his perimeter shooting ability. Form on jump-shot is solid. Made 40% of his 3-point attempts at the U19s on a limited number of attempts.
-Can create his own shot effectively. Did quite a bit of ball-handling for Canada, in transition, isolation and pick and roll ball-handling situations
-Uses hesitation moves effectively. Uses body to create space. Has nice footwork, can spin and score inside the paint. Aggressive going to the basket. Creates contact inside the paint and gets to free throw line
-Nice touch on floaters
-Tremendous rebounder for a wing. 11 rebounds per-40 at U19s
-Has great potential defensively with fluidity, body and length
-Impressive instincts for steals and blocks. Posted over 2 per game in both categories.

-Not particularly explosive. Lacks the verticality needed to be a high-level finisher around the basket. Made only 46% of his 2-point attempts in Crete, and 19/43 overall attempts inside the paint.
-Struggles to make shots off the dribble
-Jump-shot still prone to streakiness. Release point is inconsistent at times. Mechanics get a bit rigid when tightly contested
-Decision making not always there. Tends to settle for wild shots
-Needs to improve advanced ball-handling skills, and ability to weave in and out of traffic. Tries to simply overpower defenders. Drives into brick walls.
-Feel for game is average. Not a great passer.
-Very inconsistent from game to game. Looks like a lottery pick some games, and a future D-Leaguer in others.
-Shot just 45% from free throw line in Crete. Focus level isn't always there

Outlook: Extremely talented wing (probably should have been in our shooting guard article) who alternated from impressive to frustrating seemingly without rhyme or rhythm. Undecided still on whether to enroll at UNLV next season or remain at Findlay. Neither appear to be perfect options. Needs serious structure and guidance to reach his extremely high ceiling.

High School Class of 2014: Elite Prospect Scouting Reports, Part One
September 27, 2012

Jonathan Givony

-Amazing frame for his age
-Freakishly Long arms
-Solid scoring instincts
-Handles the ball in transition. Has a solid first step. Good feel for creating and scoring around the rim
-Tremendous defender. Smothers opponents with length. Plays hard.
-Well coached. Smart passer

-Very poor shooter at this stage. Needs to work on shooting mechanics. Elbow locked in. Release not fluid.
-Not a great ball-handler in the half-court

Outlook: Was by far the youngest player at the U17 World Championship at just 15 years old, but had no problem competing against the older players. Was Canada's best player in many stretches. Not a brilliant scorer, but finds ways to score, primarily in transition. Very physically mature for his age. Will be very interesting to see how he continues to improve as he gets older.
