Craig
Blackmon
Al Hilal Riyadh (SBL) added to their roster 29-year old American guard Craig Blackmon (193-87, college: Texas Tyler, agency: Octagon Europe). He played last summer at Pioneros de Los Mochis in Mexican CIBACOPA, but left. In 9 games he recorded 9.7ppg, 2.9rpg and 3.4apg. The last season Blackmon played at Al Wehda.
He played in the final of Eurobasket Summer League in Houston in 2011.
Blackmon is quite experienced player. Thanks to his pro career he managed to play on three different continents (Europe, Asia and of course North America) in four different countries. Blackmon has played previously professionally in Cyprus (Apollon), Germany (Barmer TV 1846 Wuppertal), Kosovo (Drita) and UBA (Houston E.).
He attended Texas Tyler until 2008 and it will be his ninth season as a professional player.
The scouts decsribe him following way: Craig Blackmon is an aggressive scoring point guard, who adds size, athleticism and accurate decision making to run a team and make his teammates better. Offensive skills and defensive pressure allows him to be effective on both ends of the court. Can shoot the midrange and 3 ball well and spread the defense for a dominant post player or a slashing wing man. Blackmon also has a knack for finding the open player, and he can put up points in bunches. He can score when needed but looks for his teammates more often than most. He has a 7' foot wingspan which allows him to guard multiple position from a PG to SF. Craig Blackmon is a strong point guard and can also play the shooting guard or small forward.
