Tyler Hansbrough

Cangrejeros de Santurce (BSN) signed experienced 36-year old American forward Tyler Hansbrough (206cm-113kg-1985, college: UNC) for upcoming 2022 season. The last time (2019-2020) he played at Sichuan Blue Whales in Chinese CBA league. Hansbrough missed last season and had one year break from professional basketball.
In 2009 he was drafted by Indiana Pacers (NBA) in first round (13th overall). He graduated from University of North Carolina and it will be his 13th (hopefully lucky) season in pro basketball.
Hansbrough has played also professionally in NBA (Toronto Raptors and Charlotte Hornets) and NBA G League (Fort Wayne Mad Ants).
It’s very possible he may end his playing career at Santurce.
He could be described:
(by Stevan Petrovic for NBADraft.net in 2009)

A hustle player who loves to hit the glass as hard as possible on both ends of the floor .. Has great hands that he uses well around the basket .. Makes great decisions in the post; likes turning to his left shoulder and using a right handed baby-hook -or a mini hook while creating contact with his left .. Hansbrough creates space well in the low post and tries to position himself as close as possible to the basket. Struggles defending taller and more athletic players even at the college level .. Not athletic enough to overcome his size disadvantage to be a standout at the next level .. Needs to develop face-up game
