Chamoun leads new breed of young Lebanese talentHe was a late addition to Ghassan Sarkis' squad at Champville last season, and now talented youngster Elie Chamoun plays under the Lebanon manager at Amchit. Chamoun came off the bench to score three of six 3-pointers.Since then, Chamoun, who played moderate minutes in the early parts of the season, became a mainstay in Sarkis' squad, scoring six points or more in seven games this campaign. At 19, Chamoun never seems phased or lost on the floor, hitting high-pressure shots from beyond the arc. Chamoun has averaged one 3-pointer a game this season, as he has made 23-of-46 with 50 percent from the 3-point line in 20 games. Sarkis, meanwhile, said players like Chamoun were a must for the national team if the country was to develop new talent to compliment the veteran players.Chamoun not only has the skill-set teams look for in a young shooting guard, but he also has the attitude of a seasoned player.All in all, Chamoun is clearly an elite-level prospect who will only add to the rich crop of shooting guards playing Lebanese basketball at the moment.
