Dane Johnson
DANE JOHNSON

Leones de Ponce (BSN) inked 32-year old American (has also Jamaican passport) center Dane Johnson (208-86kg-86, college: Hofstra). He played recently at Bigua in Uruguayan LUB league. In 19 games he averaged 9.6ppg, 8.6rpg, 1.2apg and 1.1bpg this season.
The most of last season Johnson spent at Larre Borges (also in LUB) where in 27 games he had very impressive stats: 16.1ppg, 11.8rpg (#2 in the league), 2.8apg and 2.0bpg. A very good season in his career as he was selected to Latinbasket.com All-Uruguay LUB Honorable Mention. He also spent pre-season at Hebraica (also in LUB). It was a very successful season in his career as he was selected to Latinbasket.com All-Uruguay LUB Honorable Mention.
Among other achievements Johnson played in the final of Moroccan League in 2014. He received also Eurobasket.com Lithuanian LKL All-Newcomers Team award back in 2012.
Johnson is a very experienced player. He has quite traveled the world as his pro career brought him to eleven different countries on four different continents (Europe, Asia, Latin America and of course North America). Johnson has played previously professionally in Canada, Germany (White Wings), Lebanon (Anibal), Poland (AZS Koszalin), Portugal, Spain (Fontedoso Carrefour), Turkey, Venezuela (Toros), Lithuania (Neptunas), Puerto Rico (Atleticos) and Ecuador (Mavort).
He attended Hofstra University until 2009 and it is his tenth season in pro basketball.
Johnson's game is described as: 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)
