2013 NBA Draft: San Antonio Spurs Select Livio Jean-Charles With No. 28 Pick
Position: Power Forward
School/Country: ASVEL Villeubanne (France)
About the Prospect: Jean-Charles is young, but he stands at 6-foot-9 and he is quickly becoming known for his high intensity and energy. A 7-foot-2 wingspan makes him an improving defender and it only bodes well to his overall potential. Jean-Charles is still a bit raw, but he has an increasing upside. Jean-Charles has the desire to improve and his work ethic and intensity is through the roof. He is crafty around the basket and can slash to the hoop with his size and length.
About His Impact on Team: No one was surprised when the Spurs took Livio Jean-Charles with the 28th overall pick. Not only was this a steal, it was a total Spurs move as head coach Gregg Popovich is known for taking the foreign route instead of selecting american-born players who feel too entitled upon entering the professional level to accomplish anything. Jean-Charles is a prototypical hard-nosed forward who will be able to contribute later on down the line. Don’t underestimate the rebuilding Spurs organization as San Antonio always finds a way to stay relevant and give us all something to talk about. Expect Jean-Charles to be a role player within the next few years, but the Spurs’ faithful are going to have to wait and see what they have in the French power forward.
