David
Andersen
Defending champion ASVEL Lyon-Villeurbanne Basket (ProA) strengthened their roster with addition of experienced 37-year old Australian international center David Andersen (213-108kg-80). It is actually his comeback to ASVEL Lyon Villeurbanne Basket as he has played here before. Andersen He started the season at United in Australian NBL league. In 19 games he recorded 10.3ppg, 4.5rpg and 1.9apg this season. The last season Andersen played at ASVEL Lyon Villeurbanne Basket where in 45 ProA games he averaged 10.8ppg, 6.0rpg and 1.5apg. He helped them to win the league title (twice) and they also made it to the Cup final (twice). Great season indeed as he was voted to Eurobasket.com All-French ProA 3rd Team and to the All-Star Game. Andersen also played 12 games in FIBA Europe Cup where he had 14.9ppg, 7.3rpg and 1.5apg. A very good season in his career as he was voted to Eurobasket.com All-FIBA Europe Cup Honorable Mention.
In 2002 Andersen was drafted by Atlanta Hawks (NBA) in second round (37th overall).
The list of the past achievements is quite long as among others he received Eurobasket.com All-French ProA Center of the Year award back in 2014.
Andersen has been also a member of Australian international program for some years. He has regularly played for Australian senior team since 2001 and previously for U21 National Team in 2001.
Andersen represented Australia at the Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro (Brazil) last year. His team got to the Semifinals and his stats at that event were 5 games: 9.8ppg, 4.6rpg, FGP: 66.7%, 3PT: 50.0%, FT: 66.7%.
Andersen is quite experienced player. Thanks to his pro career he managed to play on three different continents (Europe, Australia and of course North America) in seven different countries. Andersen has played previously professionally also in Italy (Virtus 1934 Bologna and Mens Sana 1871 Siena), Russia (CSKA Moscow), Spain (FC Barcelona), Turkey (Fenerbahce), NBA (New Orleans Pelicans, Houston Rockets and Toronto Raptors) and France (Strasbourg IG).
It's very possible he may end his playing career at ASVEL Lyon Villeurbanne Basket.
The scouts decsribe him following way: Not very strong body (yet), but very good skills like for the man his size. Very useful playing close to the basket. Can jump, and and uses his turn around jumper. Very long arms make him dangerous close to the basket, when he can play with his back to the rim, and has very good moves. Can hit from the middle-range. Quick and decent passer. He has some problems playing against stronger centers.
