ATER MAJOK

Champville (LBL) inked 31-year old center Ater Majok (208-106kg-87, college: Connecticut). He has a double citizenship as he also holds South Sudanese passport. Majok played in the summer at Shaanxi Xinda in Chinese NBL league. In 18 games he averaged impressive 22.8ppg, 13.1rpg, 3.7apg and 3.9bpg. Majok ended the last season at Al-Muharraq (Premier League) in league. But the most of that year he spent at Sagesse where in 29 LBL games he had 14.6ppg, 11.8rpg (#2 in the league), 1.7apg and 2.7bpg. Majok helped them to make it to the semifinals. A very good season in his career as he was awarded Asia-Basket.com All-Lebanese League Center of the Year, selected to 1st Team and selected to All-Imports Team.
In 2011 (a year after he left the college) Majok was drafted by Los Angeles Lakers (NBA) in second round (58th overall). The former University of Connecticut staris in his ninth season in pro basketball.
Among other achievements he won German 2.Bundesliga Pro A championship title in 2014.
Majok also represented Lebanon at the Gulf Coast Championships Semifinals this year.
He is a very experienced player. Majok has quite traveled the world as his pro career brought him to ten different countries on three different continents (Europe, Asia and of course North America). Majok has played previously professionally also in Belarus, Israel, Korea, Poland (Trefl), Slovakia (Nitra), Taiwan (Taiwan Beer), Turkey, Germany (BG Goettingen) and Lebanon (Homenetmen).
His game is described as: (by Rodney Halprin for NBADraft.net in 2011)
He is comfortable using both hands and shows good timing when going after shots ... He alters numerous plays and has the capacity to be a formidable post and help defender ... Desite his slight frame, he isn't afraid of physical play, hustles hard and will get after loose balls. He is active on the offensive boards and finds his man on the defensive end, however due to mainly his lack of strength in the past, he has not been a dominant rebounder up to this point ... He has also had some difficulties with foul trouble playing the 4/5 spot
.
