Mario Austin

Al Kuwait SC agreed terms with 30-years old American power forward Mario Austin (206-F/C-82, college: Mississippi St.).

Outlook:
Big size; has inside outside game and leadership. Seems to have finally added the skills to play on the perimeter; now he displays a variety of low post moves as well a nice touch from the outside, and can nail some 3-pointers.
