2015 FIBA U19 World Championship Scouting Reports: Shooting Guards
July 7, 2015
Jonathan Givony

Strengths:
-Not overly tall (6-3 without shoes) but has a terrific frame (212 pounds) and an extremely long wingspan (6-9 ) that allows him to play much bigger than his height
-Very good athlete
-Can attack in a straight line with a very quick first step
-Great quickness in the open court
-Outstanding defender. Guarded multiple positions in Crete. Long and competitive Great lateral quickness. Can get up and put tremendous pressure on the defense
-Gets in passing lanes on a regular basis.

Terrific defender. Catch and shoot jumpers. Pretty good athlete. Gets to rim.

Weaknesses:
-Limited offensive player. Was neither a prolific, nor efficient scorer as a freshman or at the U19s
-Poor outside shooter. Career 26% 3-point shooter. Made only two 3s in 95 minutes in Crete and 56% of his free throws
-Average ball-handler. Called for a travel almost every time he tried to put ball on floor.
-Often looked out of control trying to create own shot in the half-court. Can't change speeds or directions with the ball. Only drives right
-Needs to improve shooting mechanics. Shoots it differently almost every time. Dips ball significantly. Sometimes flails elbow out, and contorts body sideways as he elevates for jumpers
-Can't really create his own shot

Outlook: Solid role-player for USA. Defended, ran the floor, and mostly stayed out of the way on offense in the half-court. Made one huge 3-pointer late in the fourth quarter in the Gold medal game against Croatia.

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

Recruiting Rankings: 247: #83, ESPN: #54, Scout: #68, Rivals: #82
Committed to Georgetown

Strengths:
- Very good athlete with a solid frame. Can play above the rim with ease
-Fairly smart, efficient player. Does not turn the ball over very frequently
-Has a strong first step. Can get to the rim in a straight line. Finishes well around the basket
-Decent shooting mechanics. Can make catch and shoot 3-pointers. Has the potential to develop his outside shot
-Good in transition
-Makes plays using his athleticism. Very good offensive rebounder. Gets in the passing lanes. Will block shots on occasion
-Good potential defensively

Weaknesses:
-More of an undersized (6-4ish) small forward than a shooting guard at this stage
-Average shooter. Made just 28% of his 3-point attempts in 23 games at the Nike EYBL this spring
-Not a great ball-handler in the half-court. Able to blow by opponents with his quick first step, but struggles if he needs to create in more advanced ways

Outlook: Lacks the elite size or skill-level needed to be considered a top-shelf high school recruit, but has a very nice framework of skills to build off that should allow him to have a good college career and possibly more than that if he continues to improve as an outside shooter and ball-handler.
