      Haukur Palsson
      Current Team: Montverde Academy

      Haukur is a very complete SF player who can play three positions in the court without problems, offense-defense, thanks to his athletic talent and developed basketball IQ. Palsson has a special talent to control the game. Very skilled player, Palsson controls many aspects of the game.
      Physically very strong and hardy, is very active and liable on both sides of the court.
      Very fast footwork movements on defense, use his hands correctly to anticipate and steal the ball.
      He is a good shooter behind the arc and he has a nice ball touch to shoot near and far from the basket.
      Play one on one from the dribble without problems but takes advantage of many options playing the off-ball game. He is great at rebounding, being better in defense rebound.
