Edy Tavares
Raptors 905 Missisauga inked 24-year old Spaniard-Cape Verdean center Edy Tavares (220-118kg-92). He played most recently at Atlanta Hawks in the NBA. In 11 games he averaged just 2.3ppg and 1.9rpg last season. Tavares also played that season for another team Austin Toros where in 31 games he had 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 Atlanta Hawks (NBA) in second round (43rd overall).
Among other achievements he received Eurobasket.com All-EuroCup Center of the Year award 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).
His game is described as: 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.
