Basketball Without Borders Global Camp Evaluations: Guards and Wings
February 15, 2016

Richard Freudenberg, 6'9, Bayern Munich, Germany, 1998

Jonathan Givony

-Has great size for a wing player at 6'9
-Frame is immature, but looks like it should fill out nicely in time. Very well proportioned
-Fluid athlete with some ability to get up around the rim
-Fundamentally sound player. Excellent shooting mechanics. Sets feet and gets shot off instantaneously. Shows potential coming off screens, as well as shooting off the dribble
-Can attack closeouts with nice footwork
-Shows the willingness to compete on defense. Gets over screens. Will surprise you with an occasional block rotating from the weakside.

-Has a beautiful stroke, but hasn't found consistency as a shooter yet. Results aren't always there. Sometimes misses badly
-Gets somewhat down on himself at times, especially when shot isn't falling
-Still working on his ball-handling skills. Loose, high handle.
-So tall that he has a difficult time staying in front of other players at his position defensively. Somewhat upright in his stance
-Frame is at an early stage of development and will take time to fill out

Outlook: Committed to St. John's. Will be a very young freshman next year. Very talented long-term prospect who will need to continue to fill out his frame and improve his skill-level to reach his full potential.

2016 Basketball Without Borders Camp Roster Analysis
January 30, 2016

-German small forward Richard Freudenberg is also on the college track, and he's already seen a handful of minutes in the first division with powerhouse Bayern Munich. Possessing great size for the wing, a strong feel for the game and excellent shooting mechanics, Freudenberg is a streaky shooter with all the tools to emerge as a high-level prospect down the road as he continues to add strength and improves his defense and all-around versatility. St. John's is rumored to be hot on his track.

FIBA Europe U18 Championship Scouting Reports: Shooting Guards
August 5, 2015

Jonathan Givony

-Excellent size for a wing at 6-8, or possibly even 6-9
-Long arms. Big hands. Frame that should fill out nicely in time
-Smooth and fluid athlete
-Has very smooth shooting mechanics. Elevates off ground with a high release point
-Reliable shooter with feet set
-Intelligent player. Makes extra pass. Did not look out of place here despite only being 16 years old.
-Can put ball down fluidly in a straight line. Shows some athleticism off two feet. Can elevate for finishes from a standstill.

-A little bit one dimensional at this stage. Shot more 3s than 2s. Only got to free throw line four times in 174 minutes
-Doesn't have advanced ball-handling skills in the half-court
-Only 21/71 from beyond the arc (30%) in 25 FIBA and Euroleague ANGT games thus far. Has a pretty stroke, but isn't terribly consistent with it at this stage
-Has only dished out 8 assists compared with 51 turnovers in FIBA/ANGT play.
-Lacks some toughness defensively. Struggles to get in a low stance and contain smaller wing players. Doesn't always fight through screens
-Needs to become more physical as he matures and his body fills out

Outlook: Young, tall wing with nice potential as a high IQ floor-spacer. Still at a very early stage of his development. On the college track right now. Will likely pick from Gonzaga, St. John's and Vanderbilt according to what he told us.
