6-5 Gilwan Nelson has signed an agency contract with Free Agency Basketball (Spain). He played two years of junior college basketball at Olney Central and his last two years at Illinois Springfield. Nelson recently completed his senior season at NCAA Division 2 Illinois Springfield in the very good Great Lakes Valley Conference. He averaged 14.9 points and 4.2 rebounds per game. He scored in double figures in 24 of his 26 games. He also had 56 offensive rebounds which ranked 4th in the GLVC. He was voted to the GLVC All Conference team. Nelson also played very well at the 2019 SBS Pro Invitational for college seniors in April. "Gilwan is a versatile wing who is very athletic and has a great upside. David and I are excited about him and his pro potential. He had a very consistent season this past year against a very good Division 2 schedule, and I was impressed by him at the SBS workout a few weeks ago. I think he will make a team looking for a versatile wing player a very good player next season" said Michael Stinnett (Free Agency Director of Scouting). See Gilwan Nelson Highlight below!
