High School Class of 2014 Scouting Reports, Part Three- the Wings
September 5, 2013


Jonathan Givony

Recruiting Rankings: 247: #12, ESPN: #8, Scout: #7, Rivals: #10
Committed to North Carolina

Strengths:
-Very good size for a small forward. Measured 6-8 in shoes
-Terrific scoring instincts. Can put the ball in the net from anywhere on the court. Extremely efficient
-Excellent perimeter shooter. Very good mechanics. Can make shots with feet set or off the dribble
-High release point on jumper allows him to get shot off with ease
-Can make tough turnaround jumpers inside the post
-Very soft touch on his floaters. Very effective in-between game with his crafty runners
-Highly intelligent, mature, team player
-Excellent passer. 2.5/1 assist to turnover ratio at the Nike EYBL

Weaknesses:
-Very frail frame. Weighed just 189 pounds in July. How much stronger can he get, especially in the lower body?
-Doesn't have amazing length (6-9 wingspan) relative to his size
-Average athlete. Does not possess a great first step or overwhelming explosiveness
-Struggles to finish around the basket due to poor strength/explosiveness
-Lacks toughness? Avoids contact in the lane.
-Average motor on defense. Doesn't make much of an impact in the passing lanes or as a shot-blocker. Upright in his stance, and does not possess great lateral quickness
-Lacks some assertiveness at times
-A little bit old for his class. Turns 19 in March

Outlook: Extremely skilled small forward with a strong basketball IQ. Lacks the athleticism and aggressiveness you typically see from a player so highly. Did not perform that impressively in any of the settings I evaluated him, particularly compared with many of his peers at his position.
