J.R. Giddens - Asseco Prokom_28774PAOK Thessaloniki added some scoring punch by signing swingman J.R. Giddens for the season. Giddens (1.96 meters, 26 years old) made his Turkish Airlines Euroleague debut last season with Asseco Prokom, for whom he averaged 9 points on 47.4% three-point shooting and 5.2 rebounds in 10 games. His best game was his very first: 20 points on 9-for-9 two-point shooting and 10 rebounds in a losing effort against Khimki Moscow Region. Later in the season Giddens briefly joined Valencia Basket in Spain, but left before ever appearing in a game for the Spanish club. Giddens played college basketball for the University of Kansas and later for the University of New Mexico, where he was named the 2008 Mountain West Conference co-Player of the Year. He then spent parts of two seasons in the NBA with Boston and New York before coming to Europe.
