His country's most experienced player after years of playing in some of the best leagues in Europe, Jon Arnor already has an accomplished career at club and national team level, and a EuroBasket Final Round appearance will now be the icing on the cake. After starting his career with a season in Germany at TBB Trier, he signed with the Dallas Mavericks in the NBA but never played an official game for the Texan club. He returned to Europe to play under the guidance of David Blatt at Dynamo St. Petersburg, immediately winning a Eurocup title. Hailed for his tough defence and as a lockdown defender, he has a strong and athletic body, and is very effective at scoring off the drive, while also having the ability to shoot in and outside, and create for team-mates. He did not start the second Qualification Round with Iceland due to free agency issues, but joined the team for their last two games, scoring a game-high 23 points in a famous victory over Great Britain. Jon Arnor then finished the year off as being named the "Sportsman of the Year 2014" in Iceland, becoming only the second basketball player in his nation's history to be awarded the honour.
