FIBA Europe U18 Championship Scouting Reports: Small Forwards
August 5, 2015
Jonathan Givony

Strengths:
-Good size for a wing at 6-7. Strong frame
-Has nice, compact shooting mechanics with a quick release
-Can make shots with feet set
-Can come off screens
-Attacks closeouts with nice timing.
-Can create his own shot a bit in half-court
-Can create with footwork and fluidity
-Gets in the passing lanes with nice anticipation skills
-Crashes offensive glass

Weaknesses:
-Not a great athlete by NBA standards. Smooth and fluid, but lacks a degree of explosiveness
-Needs to continue to hone his 3-point shot. 26% career outside shooter in 48 game sample size we have logged. Has nice mechanics but isn't always consistent
-Struggles to make shots off the dribble. Contorts his body on the release
-Very upright in stance defensively. Needs to continue to get stronger and tougher.

Outlook: Signed a three year contract with mid-level ACB team Obradoiro, which should give him more opportunity to find minutes at the senior level than he would have staying in Real Madrid. Shows potential in different parts of the game, and has been very productive in other settings, particularly the Euroleague ANGT, where Real Madrid won the championship.
