Tiago SplitterHt/Wt: 7-0 / 240 lbs
2007 Draft Profile
An excellent rebounder and shot blocker. He has decent ball handling skills and a good, but not great, jumper. Very long and runs the floor well; he's a good, but not great athlete. He's fearless and doesn't mind contact in the paint. Possesses refined post footwork and body control which allows him to get his shot off with no trouble in the post. His athleticism and coordination are also improving. Most scouts agree that his defense is ahead of his offense right now. Needs to improve his upper body strength, which could limit the frustration when he is played physically in the post, which has led to some questions regarding his mental toughness.
Tiago Splitter Coast to Coast
2006 Draft Profile
Averaging 8.0 PPG and 4.4 RPG the Euroleague this season. Withdrew from last years draft as he couldn’t get a lottery commitment. He has been on or near the top of every scouts list of European players for almost three years. His is long and a good shot blocker and rebounder. Has a decent shot. Runs the floor well for a guy his size. Questions are being raised as to where he’d play in the NBA, PF or SF. He needs to get stronger if he’s going to be a PF as he may be too slow to play the 3. Defensive game is improving.
