Dane Johnson
DANE JOHNSON

Atletico Bigua Montevideo (LUB) landed 32-year old American (has also Jamaican passport) center Dane Johnson (208-86kg-86, college: Hofstra). He joins another USA player Carl Elliott which is already in the roster.
Johnson played in the summer at Toros in Venezuelan LPB league. In 13 games he averaged 12.8ppg, 9.3rpg (#2 in the league), 1.5apg and 1.5bpg. Good season as he was selected League Player of the Week.
The most of last season he spent at Larre Borges where in 27 LUB games he had very impressive stats: 16.1ppg, 11.8rpg (#2 in the league), 2.8apg and 2.0bpg. It was a very successful season in his career as he was selected to Latinbasket.com All-Uruguay LUB Honorable Mention. Johnson also spent pre-season at Hebraica that year. He can count that season as a very successful as was selected to Latinbasket.com All-Uruguay LUB Honorable Mention.
Among other achievements he played in the final of Moroccan League in 2014. Johnson received also Eurobasket.com Lithuanian LKL All-Newcomers Team award back in 2012.
He is a very experienced player. And here thanks to pro basketball Johnson experienced life in ten different countries playing on four different continents. He is familiar with European, Asian, Latin American and of course North American leagues. Johnson has played previously professionally in Canada, Germany (White Wings), Lebanon (Anibal), Poland (AZS Koszalin), Portugal, Puerto Rico (Atleticos), Spain (Fontedoso Carrefour), Turkey, Lithuania (Neptunas) and Ecuador (Mavort).
He attended Hofstra University until 2009 and it will be his tenth season in pro basketball.
Let's have closer look into Johnson's outlook: He's a natural center, who is very comfortable playing with his back to the basket. He's known for playing hard and being physical. Dane has good post moves and a good feel for maneuvering himself for a good
look around the basket (good footwork, good hands). He's got a soft touch on his jump hook, can finish with either hand around the basket and will get his share of dunks. Johnson is also a good shotblocker. Dane has a defensive prowess and he knows how to play helpside defense. He has long arms (7'3 wingspan),
good coordination, and his shot blocking will help clean up some of the defensive deficiencies of his teammates. Dane has a soft shooting touch and is improving his face-up perimeter shooting. In the post, he's got the moves (drop step, drop step counter,spins, fadeaways and turnarounds). He's got skills (he passes the ball fairly well too)
