Intriguing prospect due to his incredible size and good mobility.
It is rare to find a 7-3 player who can move like Tavares. He gets up and down the court well, has decent lateral mobility and is quick off his feet.
Has a good frame. Not skinny but plenty of room to add muscle/weight. Uses his size well to change shots in the lane and control rebounds. Has ability to play above the rim and does most of his scoring within a few feet of the basket. Developing post moves and seems committed to working on his game.
He’s raw but the upside is intriguing.
Raw, unpolished and may be a few years away from contributing at the NBA level. Limited offensive player at this stage.
Projection: early to mid second round pick in the 2014 NBA Draft
