NBA Draft Prospect Kaleb Tarczewski
7-0 – Center – Arizona
A rock solid center with good NBA size. Rebounds and defends but doesn’t stand out in any one area.
Has true NBA center size and controls his size well. A legit 7 footer with broad shoulders and good strength. Displays very good body control in the lane and even though he doesn’t have high end athleticism, he’s a more than capable athlete and gets up and down the floor well.
Showed an improving post game with a decent jump hook. Scores well on put backs and from within 5 feet.
A solid defender and rebounder who gets good position and uses his physical tools well.
Tarczewski is a poor free throw shooter and lacks a constant mid range jumper. Must improve his post offense. Is only an average shot blocker.
Hasn’t shown much improvement during his college career and isn’t an “upside” player.
Projection: possible second round pick in the 2016 NBA Draft
