Sharks Head Coach Atiba Lyons spoke of the decision to recruit the 6’ 3” guard.
‘Jonathan is a versatile combo guard with a great resume in European basketball. He is a scorer with the ability to provide for his team-mates.’
‘He is a great system player but also has the ability to create for himself. I feel he will be able to step in right away and contribute.’
