Position: PF                        College: Georgia               Class/YOB: Senior

Height: 6’9                          Weight: 245                       Wingspan: 7’1

 

Strengths:

  • Physically mature. Ready to be a contributor.
  • Good passer out of the post. Will avoid the heavy double teams in the NBA, but the ability to find open teammates translates.
  • Junkyard dog. Is a relentless competitor. Shows up on the glass where he battles for position. Tremendous offensive rebounder.
  • Inside-out post threat. Can score with his back to the basket or facing up. Jumper has extended out to the three-point line and should become a useful tool as he gains comfort.

Weaknesses:

  • Lacks superior height or athleticism. He is strong but not particularly explosive.
  • Doesn’t guard pick-and-rolls very well.
  • Struggles to stay in front of quicker post players.
  • Can block shots but doesn’t protect the rim very well against athleticism.
