Draft Notes

The Michigan transfer Dickinson is a load to handle in the paint. He’s a throw-back center who throws his weight around inside and also has a really soft touch around the basket.

Establishes position well, using his big frame to shield defenders and carve out space in the paint.

Has a really good touch from inside and from mid range. A lefty who can score with either hand (shot nearly 60% from the field as a freshman).

Plays a mature game and makes good decisions with the ball. Knows how to move the ball out of double-teams. Becoming a very high level passer could be his ticket to the NBA.

An older prospect for his class.

Doesn’t have great speed or agility and will struggle to guard in space at the next level.
