Kaloyan Ivanov managed to pull down a ridiculous 20 rebounds in just 26 minutes of playing time this past weekend in the ACB League. It looks even more unreal when you consider that he was averaging only 2.6 prior to this game. His effort on the glass, complimented with 9 points and 2 assists, allowed ViveMenorca to collect a one-point victory over Iurbentia Bilbao. Ivanov, who stands 6-9, is playing mainly at the small forward position. He’s not greatly athletic, but he can shoot spot-up perimeter jumpers, he can put the ball on the floor taking advantage of unbalanced defenses or relatively slow match-ups (his average quickness and ball-handling skills doesn’t allow him to beat opponents at will), and he constantly cuts towards the lane and attacks the offensive rebound in order to cash off his superior size at his position. A very active guy, he can eventually suffer from his lateral mobility on defense, while he’s not a great low-post defender. He’s automatically eligible this year, although given his lack of elite athleticism and refined skill set, it would be surprising to hear his name called in the draft. Anyway, he’s becoming an increasingly productive player in the demanding ACB League, having reached the 20-minute mark in each of the past five games.
