Johan Petro
Johan Petro (214-C-86) replace Ronny Turiaf (208-C-83, agency: Priority Sports, college: Gonzaga) in French squad for EuroBasket 2013. The 27-year old French international center will go to Slovenia with France National team.
In 2012/2013 he played for Atlanta Hawks in NBA. In 37 games he had 3.7ppg and 3.6rpg last season.
The previous (11-12) season Petro played at the Nets in NBA. In 59 games he recorded 4.2ppg and 3.8rpg that season.
In 2005 he was drafted by Seattle Supersonics (NBA) in first round (25th overall). Petro won NBA Northwest Division championship title in 2010.
Johan Petro has been also a member of French international program for some years. Petro has regularly played for French senior team since 2005 and previously for U18 National Team between 2002 and 2004. He represented France at the World Championships in Japan seven years ago. His stats at that event were 7 games: 3.6ppg, 2.1rpg.
Petro has played also professionally in Italy, NBA (Denver Nuggets and Oklahoma City Thunder) and France (Pau-Lacq-Orthez and Centre Federal du Basket-Ball).
He could be described: A modern kind of front court player, who runs well the floor, has great leaping ability, passes the ball well; if he adds shooting, has huge upside at power forward.
