Edy Tavares
Atlanta Hawks waived 24-year old Spaniard-Cape Verdean center Edy Tavares (220-118kg-92). In only one NBA game he recorded just 2 points and 1 rebound this season.
The last season Tavares played at another team Austin Toros where in 31 games he averaged 9.1ppg, 8.0rpg and 3.1bpg. He helped them to end the regular season as a second best team in D-League Soutwest Division. They also advanced to the league semifinals.
Two years ago Tavares was drafted by the Hawks in second round (43rd overall).
The list of the past achievements is quite long as among others he was voted Eurobasket.com All-EuroCup Center of the Year in 2015.
Tavares represented Spain at the Afrobasket Championships in Abidjan (Ivory Coast) three 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 previously professionally in Spain (Gran Canaria, La Palma and Gran Canaria) and D-League (Northern Arizona Suns and Canton Charge).
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.
