Chang Thailand Slammers (ASEAN League) signed 32-year old American power forward Christien Charles (216-102kg-81, college: Villanova). He just played at Chicago Steam (ABA) in the U.S.. The last season Charles played at Al Ahli (Premier League) in Saudi Arabian Premier League. He helped them to make it to the semifinals.
The previous (10-11) season Charles played at Al Jaish (Division I) in Syrian Division I. He contributed to his team making it to the final after they ended regular season as second best team. A very impressive season as he was named to Asia-Basket.com All-Syrian League 2nd Team.
Charles won Syrian League championship title in 2010.
He is quite experienced player. Charles has played also professionally in Iran (Ararat), Lebanon (Al Riyadi and Champville), Serbia, Dominican Republic (Cocolos) and Syria (Al Jalaa).
He attended Villanova University until 2006 and it will be his seventh season as a professional player.
Charles could be described: Christien is a true 7 footer who has tremendously improved his game since he finished college due to an outstanding work ethic. As a reserve on the nationally ranked Villanova team, Christien had the opportunity to be trained by some of the best coaches in the country. He has developed into a very good player who plays with a lot of energy and heart. Very active big man that can run the floor extremely well. Fundamentally sound. Rebounds, passes well, scores and blocks shots. If left open, he can also knock down the 15 foot jump shot with consistency. Slender build. Must improve strength to reach full potential. Once rated as a top 5 high school center in the country behind such notable current NBA centers Tyson Chandler & Eddie Curry. Made Chicago Bulls summer league squad that featured Derrick Rose, Joakim Noah & Tyrus Thomas. Solid overseas resume that includes back to back championships with two different teams. Coachable, unselfish team player that has been groomed by the likes of Jay Wright & legendary big man coach Pete Newell. Christien would be a valuable asset to any team looking to add some size & skill.
