Defending champion KR Reykjavik (Dominos League) tabbed experienced 34-year old Icelandic international guard Jon Stefansson (192-95kg-82). It is actually his comeback to Reykjavik as he has played here before. Stefansson played most recently at Valencia Basket in Spanish Liga Endesa. In 37 games he averaged 5.2ppg and 1.0apg last season. He helped them to make it to the semifinals. Stefansson also played 14 games in Eurocup where he had 5.1ppg, 1.1rpg and 2.1apg. The previous (14-15) season Stefansson played at Unicaja Malaga (also in Liga Endesa). In 36 games he recorded 4.8ppg and 1.1rpg. He also played 20 games in Euroleague where he got 5.1ppg and 1.2apg. Among other achievements Stefansson received Eurobasket.com All-European Championships Honorable Mention award in 2015. He has been also a member of Icelandic international program for some years. Stefansson has regularly played for Icelandic senior team since 2000 and previously for U18 National Team in 2000. He represented Iceland at the European Championships last year. His stats at that event were 5 games: 13.6ppg, 2.2rpg, 5.8apg, FGP: 39.6%, 3PT: 30.0%, FT: 85.7%. Stefansson is a very experienced player. He has played also professionally in Germany, Italy (Roma Virtus, Benetton Treviso and Napoli Megaride), Russia (Dynamo St.Petersburg) and Spain (CB Granada and CAI Zaragoza). Let's have closer look into Stefansson's outlook:
The size and the skills of a modern point guard, with great passing time and good shooting touch; he too has to develop again a little, and to rech maturity, but considering how well he is playing at 19, he can become a star too.
He is very effective at scoring off the dribble penetration. He is surprisingly strong and athletic. He's not shy about using that power to mix it up with the tall timber inside.
