6-10 – Power Forward – Michigan State
A raw and promising PF with intriguing upside. Well built for the next level.
Has really good length, strength and fluidity. Gets off the ground well and has good coordination. Has a quick first and second jump.
A solid post defender who protects the rim well. Shows good timing on weak-side help and has a good feel for defensive rotations. Has a nose for the ball and rebounds out of his area well.
Still developing as a post player but shows a lot of potential. Has a nice face-up game with good form on his jumper and range out to 18.
Runs the floor like a wing. Has good hands and catches the ball in transition well.
Lacking in experience and is raw and unrefined. Doesn’t yet have consistent moves in the paint and lacks a go-to move.
Needs to bulk up. Is too foul prone and needs to play with better discipline.
Must improve as a free throw shooter and continue to get more consistent from mid range.
Reminds of Al Horford with his ability to face up and score from two levels. Looks like a higher upside version of Richaun Holmes.
Projection: lottery pick in the 2016 or 2017 NBA Draft
