Chaz
Franklin
Al Arabi (SBL) agreed terms with experienced 36-year old American point guard Chaz Franklin (180-81, college: Roberts Wesleyan). He played last summer at Arcense in Salvadorean Liga MB. In 27 games he had very impressive stats: 20.5ppg, 5.6rpg, 6.6apg (top 5) and 2.9spg (in top 5). A very spectacular season in his career as he was named to Latinbasket.com All-El Salvador Liga Mayor Torneo Clausura Honorable Mention.
Franklin won Guatemalan Asociacion de Baloncesto Atletico championship title in 2011.
He is quite experienced player. Franklin has played in nine different countries on four different continents (Europe, Asia, Latin America and of course North America). He has played previously professionally in Bosnia, Colombia (Islanders), Finland (Ura Basket), Germany, Italy, Kuwait (Al Sahel), Venezuela and Guatemala (Amatitlan).
Franklin is a former Eurobasket Summer League player, which is considered top international summer league on the market.
He attended Roberts Wesleyan College until 2005 and it will be his twelfth (!!!) season as a professional player.
Franklin could be described: Extremely athletic guard, with the ability to play both backcourt positions. Has ability to play above the rim. Solid ball-handler and exceptional onball defender...due to good lateral quickness and great upper body strength. Excellent penetrator, with ability to finish against taller defenders or create for others...by dishing or kicking to shooters. Great in catch and shoot situations. Rebounds extremely well for his size and plays game with grit and toughness.
