The Spurs selected Livio Jean-Charles with the No. 20 pick in the NBA draft on Thursday. Here's a look at Jean-Charles and how he fits with San Antonio:

Bio: French Guiana | 19 years old | Small Forward/Power Forward

Vitals: 6-9, 217 pounds

2012-13 Statistics: 3.4 points, 2.8 rebounds, 0.4 assists, 58.9 percent shooting at Asvel Lyon-Villeurbanne (per NBA.com)

Strengths: Jean-Charles has the length and quickness to make an immediate defensive impact. Scouts are still unsure what position he'll play in the pros, but, at 19, he's already shown he can competently defend both forward spots. His offense is still a work in progress, but the upside is there.

Weaknesses: He's in danger of being a tweener. His offensive game is best suited for the 4, but, at this point, he's too skinny to play up front. He has a nice mid-range touch, but he'll need to add range to his jumper and develop his ball-handling skills to play the 3 full time.
