NBA Draft Spotlight: Moses Brown

UCLA big man Moses Brown left after a decent freshman season. He brings a lot of size and physical tools that could be of use to some team willing to develop him.

Position: C From: UCLA Class/YOB: Freshman
Height: 7’1 Weight: 241 Wingspan: 7’4

Strengths:

  • Terrific size and length. Was one of the tallest players at the combine
  • Protects the rim well. Has to work on staying vertical, but he regularly contests shots in his area. Averaged 3.3 blocks per 40 minutes
  • Has the ability to outrun opposing bigs. Very agile for a 7-footer
  • Has soft hands and the ability to easily finish above the rim. Was one of the top offensive rebounders in the country as a freshman. Crashes with a purpose
  • A projectable body that should be able to put on some weight

Weaknesses:

  • Struggles with physicality at times. Can lose out on rebounds or be buried in the post due to a lack of strength
  • Atrocious foul shooter
  • Not going to be guarded anywhere outside of 12-feet at this point
  • Has to work on his footwork on rolls and in the post. You can tell he is still inexperienced by the way he rushes when he gets the ball
