2007 Draft Profile

A long, athletic forward who is very skilled. Has long arms and big hands, which allows him to play even bigger than he actually is. Is an excellent shooter and ball handler for his size. Fundamentally very sound, a hard worker with an excellent basketball IQ. Great finisher around the basket, and is capable of making some impressive dunks on the break. Rarely does he force the issue, let’s the game come to him. His perimeter shooting is very impressive, and is able to stretch the defense out with a18-20 foot jumper. While he doesn’t own many back to the basket moves, he does possess a consistent turnaround jumper in the post. On the defensive end, he is a solid help defender with his lateral quickness and wingspan. Possesses quick hands which can disrupt passing lanes. Needs to add strength to his upper body, work on his post game, rebounding and shot blocking abilities.
