Edy Tavares
Atlanta Hawks agreed terms with 23-year old Spaniard-Cape Verdean center Walter Tavares (220-118kg-92). He has played for the last three seasons at Herbalife Gran Canaria 2014 in Spanish Liga Endesa. In 23 Eurocup games he had 9.0ppg, 7.7rpg and 1.9bpg last season.
Last year Tavares was drafted by the Hawks in second round (43rd overall). Tavares was also voted Eurobasket.com All-EuroCup Center of the Year in 2015. His team made it to the ACB Semifinals in 2013. He represented Spain at the Afrobasket Championships in Abidjan (Ivory Coast) two years ago. His stats at that event were 7 games: 8.1ppg, 6.0rpg, Blocks-5 (1.6bpg), FGP-1 (73.5%), FT: 53.8%.
Tavares has played also professionally in Spain for La Palma.
On Tavares: Standing 7-3, with an astonishing wingspan of 7-9 he has tremendous size, combined with excellent mobility for a big man with his dimensions ... He's always active on the floor, showing great progresses from a conditioning standpoint, compared to when he arrived on the Canary Islands ... Offensively he's really effective in pick and roll situations, showing the ability to finish above the rim after the cut with aggressiveness, furthermore his mobility and coordination make him an effective contributor in creating space for his teammates with solid screens, playing a key role in Gran Canarias offense .. Most of his offensive repertoire is based on dunks and put backs after an offensive rebound, but he has shown significant improvements on his hook shot using his right hand ... He has a soft touch and he's a solid free throw shooter ... Defensively he's a great pick and roll defender, being able to recover in the painted area after helping on the screen ... Plus with his great size and wingspan he's definitely a great rim protector. According to those with knowledge of him, he's a nice, humble guy with a great work ethic.
