PATRICK O'BRYANT

London Lightning (NBL Canada) strengthened their roster with addition of 32-year old Central African ex-international center Patrick O'Bryant (213-121kg-86, college: Bradley). He played last summer at Always a Brave (The Basketball Tournament) in the U.S. O'Bryant also played for Nevada in U.S. semi-pro league NAPB.
In 2006 he was drafted by Golden State Warriors (NBA) in first round (9th overall). The former Bradley University staris in his 13th (hopefully lucky) season in pro basketball.
The list of the past achievements is quite long as among others O'Bryant won Taiwanese SBL championship title in 2016. He was also voted Asia-basket.com All-Taiwanese SBL Player of the Year and Asia-basket.com All-Taiwanese SBL Import Player of the Year in 2016. O'Bryant was a member of Central African Senior National Team back in 2013.
He is quite experienced player. Thanks to O'Bryant's pro career he managed to play on four different continents (Europe, Asia, Latin America and of course North America) in eight different countries. O'Bryant has played previously professionally in Greece (Kavala), Lithuania (Rytas), Philippines (Global Port), Puerto Rico (Atleticos), Venezuela, NBA (Toronto Raptors), Taiwan (Taiwan Beer and Fubon Braves) and NBA G League (Stockton Kings).
The scouts decsribe him following way: (by Aran Smith for NBADraft.net in 2006)
Very good agility for a 7 footer, light on his feet ... Not afraid of contact, good strength and improving rapidly ... Runs the court and moves very well, also quick getting into transition ... Great shot blocker, doesn't get overzealous. Can block a lot of shots without jumping ... Excellent rebounder ... Has good touch on his shot, solid free throw shooter ... Works hard to establish position under the basket ...
Body balance is weak, will improve in time with added strength ... Not a tremendous leaper, but above average for a 7 footer
