Height: 6-11

Weight: 229

Recent team: Panelefsinlakos

College: Florida State ’12

As a senior at Florida State, Gibson averaged 6.8 points, 4.3 rebounds and 1.3 blocks per game. He currently plays for Panelefsinlakos in Greece.

In 2012 NBA scouts were interested in Gibson because he had a strong frame, good size and reasonably good athleticism. Even as a big man, he had the ability to step back and make long-range shots. He was also an effective post player with a smooth turnaround jump shot.

He also has showed promise as an offensive rebounder and a threat defensively in the paint.
