"Bonzie is a versatile combo-forward who can do a little bit of everything; he can impact the game through scoring but is also a tremendous rebounder for his position who covers space very well," Coach Oded Kattash told the club’s website. "He is very energetic guy who brings toughness and intensity, a very communicative person who will fit well in the locker room."
