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

Jonathan Givony

-Decent size for a shooting guard at 6-5. Nice body. Solid length.
-Above average athlete. Can elevate around the basket. Solid quickness.
-One of the best shooters in the tournament. 44% for 3 on 4.6 attempts per game. 86% FT
-Very good shooter with feet set. Catches and shoots with good form. Has great range.
-Terrific weapon in transition and in early offense running to the corners. Decent speed running to the rim as well
-Can come off screens a bit
-Can pull-up off the dribble a bit.
-Makes contested shots in impressive fashion.
-A year younger than most of the competition

-One-dimensional player offensively right now. Struggles to create own shot
-Poor ball-handler.
-Struggles to finish around the basket in the half-court. Avoids contact. Doesn't get to free throw line (seven attempts in 191 minutes in Crete). Doesn't use off-hand.
-Can improve the quickness of his release. Dips the ball unnecessary on the catch
-Doesn't create much for teammates. Average passer

Outlook: A staple of the Serbian junior national teams at the U16, U17 and U18 age groups. One of the most experienced players at the tournament, after seeing 15 minutes per game at age 17/18 in the Serbian league, EuroCup and Adriatic League for Partizan. Had a handful of very impressive performances in senior competition. Struggled against better competition at the U19s, but ended up having a solid tournament with some good showings in the consolation bracket. Has some interesting tools to work with his solid physical tools and perimeter shooting ability.
