Renaldo
Balkman
Al Ahli (Premier League) tabbed 32-year old Puerto Rican international forward Renaldo Balkman (203-102kg-84, college: S.Carolina). He has a double citizenship as he also holds American passport. Balkman played in the summer at Capitanes de Arecibo in Puerto Rican BSN league. He managed to play in three leagues last year (!!!). In 47 BSN games he averaged impressive 15.9ppg, 8.4rpg, 2.5apg, 1.4spg (in top 4) and 1.2bpg. Balkman helped them to win the league title (twice). He can count that season as a very successful as was selected to Latinbasket.com All-Puerto Rican BSN 1st Team and All-Domestic Players Team. Balkman also played 3 games in Liga Americas where he had 10.0ppg, 6.0rpg, 1.0spg and 1.0bpg. The last season Balkman was tested by Fuerza Regia in Mexican LNBP. In four games he recorded very remarkable stats: 15.5ppg, 6.8rpg, 4.0apg, 2.0spg and 1.0bpg.
In 2006 Balkman was drafted by New York Knicks (NBA) in first round (20th overall). The former University of South Carolina staris in his eleventh (!!!) season in pro basketball.
Among other achievements he received Latinbasket.com All-Mexican LNBP Player of the Year award and Latinbasket.com All-Mexican LNBP Defensive Player of the Year award in 2014.
Balkman also represented Puerto Rico at the Centrobasket in Panama City (Panama) this year. His team won Gold and his stats at that event were 6 games: 6.8ppg, 5.3rpg, 1.7apg, FGP: 50.0%, FT: 64.3%.
Balkman is a very experienced player. And here thanks to pro basketball he experienced life in six different countries playing on three different continents. He is familiar with Asian, Latin American and of course North American leagues. Balkman has played previously professionally in Philippines (SM Beermen), Venezuela (Guaiqueries), NBA (Denver Nuggets), Mexico (Halcones Rojos) and D-League (Texas Legends).
Let's have closer look into His outlook: (by Aran Smith for NBADraft.net in 2006)
Excellent rebounder who hits the glass hard ... His bread and butter will be defensively. Good feet, extremely long arms, quick hands. Effective thief, and has good timing for blocked shots off the ball and on smaller perimeter players Has the versatility to guard on the perimeter and in the post: His great foot speed gives him the quickness to defend quick forwards and guards, and his wiry strength and long arms give him the ability to defend inside ...
Lacks any real range on his shot ... Very sloppy
