Birth Date 02/19/1980
Position Shooting Guard
Height 198 cm
Country Israel
Status Israeli
Description Grew up in Bnei Hertzliya's junior teams… A tall guard, can play positions 1-3… Really improved his outside shots in the last years… Does everything well: Penetration, rebounds, dishing assists, scoring, defense… all good, but nothing which is really amazing… If he focused more on his playmaking, was probably already overseas… Might face problems while leading the ball against smaller guards, but will post them up down low easily…Not always finishes aggressively enough, but when he does, it's always impressive… Ask Ratko Varda or Constantin Popa who still remember the dunk they've received in their face… Smart team player, knows to step up when needed, but mostly in the NT… Israel's next big thing… Led a very promising generation to several successive campaigns… Leads the NT squad from a young age…
