Blanc Mange is a very smart, crafty, hard-working player from France who is hoping to convince the league that Frenchies can ball too. There is no reason to argue that fact, as he has proven he's got the skills to shine in the Euro leagues. The big question is will his skills transition into the "Big League", the FBA?

Already possessing an impressive resume as a young, 20 year old draft hopeful, Blanc led his team, Asvel Basket, to the French League championship last year, all while averaging 18 points and 9 rebounds a game. He is smart beyond his years, as he already possesses a wide array (dare I say 'plethora'?) of low post moves, pivots, fakes, spins, hooks, shakes, fades, you name it. A very capable low post player who isn't afraid to sacrifice his body for the good of the team, he does a pretty good job of banging with the big boys, even if he has a weight or height disadvantage.

A cunning player, he knows how to use what he's got to hold his own down low. He did average 9.1 rebounds a game last year because he is great at getting position inside and boxing out defenders. He does all those little things that coaches love: box-out, set screens, play good defense, hustle for loose balls, step in front of charging players for offensive fouls, and do what he is told to do. A very capable defender, he can hold his own down low or step out to guard perimeter players on the pick and roll. He is fast for his size, and does a decent job staying with guards if he's caught in a switch.

Blanc has a shaky mid-range shot, though he is obviously improving. He can occasionally hit the 15 footer if he is left open, though that's a facet of his game that, if it improved, would give him many more scoring options. As of now, most of his damage on the offensive end is done down low, getting tips, put-backs, and short hooks and turnaround shots. He uses his high basketball IQ to outsmart his opponent down low, and his nice vertical leap and strong, wide build to overpower them when we is able. He does tend to get turnovers if he holds onto the ball too long, and his ball-handling and passing from the post could use a little work.

Most of all, he has a great basketball attitude. Give it your all, all the time. Do what your team needs you to do. Never back down, and never give up. These are the mottos this wolf has lived with to this point, so it stands to reason he will continue to. Whatever coach gets this hustling, hard-working, intelligent, loyal, team-oriented player is sure to be pleasantly surprised.
