Donald Lawson (208 cm, Western Michigan’10) will get to play his fourth season for BV Chemnitz 99 from Germany’s ProA. Lawson has shown some steady improvement in his three seasons with Chemnitz. He has shown potential on the defensive end of the floor, as exhibited by his averages of 1.3 bpg and 1.4 spg in 2012-13. He also averaged a double-double that season with 11.0 ppg and 10.3 rpg.
In 2011-12 he averaged 8.8 ppg and 6.1 rpg, so his trajectory is pointing upward. He can still develop into a strong defensive presence on the court.
