2014 Albert Schweitzer Tournament - Elite Prospects
May 13, 2014

Jonathan Givony

-Terrific physical attributes. Nice frame. Long arms. Very good athlete
-Runs the floor extremely well
-Very reliable target for catch and finish plays
-Good hands allow him to catch virtually everything thrown to him
-Finishes with two hands easily and emphatically with no running start
-Excellent offensive rebounder (6.4 per-40 minutes)
-Legit rim protector
-Very mobile, can step out into the perimeter on defense
-Shooting mechanics look decent. Made 71% of free throw attempts
-Took a 3, and didn't look half bad doing so

-Skill-level a major work in progress
-Needs to be spoon-fed offensively
-No back to the basket game
-Limited footwork
-Can get posted up because of poor lower body strength
-Still learning to play with a consistent intensity level

Outlook: Looked like a different player compared to what we saw in February at the NIJT Belgrade. Improved structure, spacing, teammates, and team-play helped bring out the best of him. Only 17 years old, still has plenty of upside to grow into as his frame fills out. Reportedly looking to take the college route and will easily be considered a high-major player.

Nike International Junior Tournament Belgrade 2014 Scouting Reports
March 7, 2014
Jonathan Givony

-Very athletic big man with an excellent wingspan and a frame that will fill out nicely in time
-Tremendous rebounder. 15 per-40 in Belgrade
-Excellent timing as a shot-blocker. 5.3 per-40. Legit rim protector
-High energy player who competes admirably

-Very limited offensive player. 6.1 points per-40 minutes shooting 33% for 2
-Doesn't really know his limitations. Settles for some highly questionable shots. No ability to operate with his back to the basket. Shows limited touch.
-Made 25% of his free throw attempts

Outlook: Spanish big man of African descent who appears to be on the college track. Can be a very useful rotational piece for a good college team as he has excellent length, athleticism and timing as a rebounder/shot-blocker. Will need to develop the rest of his game to improve his NBA prospects, but he's only 17 so time is on his side.
