During his Italian national team tenure, Angelo Gigli earned big credit as a defensive specialist, because of his workaholic attitude, his game knowledge and his quickness for his size. His quick feet made him a 2.09m small forward in early years. Injuries and some limited offensive talent affected his career a little bit, having once been an NBA projected draft pick. But at the same time Gigli has earned big European experience and he's ready to provide his contribution in the paint - playing both at power forward and at center. At EuroBasket 2013, after missing the 2011 edition, his defensive effort could be a positive key for the Azzurri squad. Moreover Gigli is always an important presence in the locker room, thanks to his positive mentality.
