NBA Comparison:

Strengths: Casto possesses a strong build as a 6’8 240 PF…Pretty impressive 7’2 wingspan … Solid touch around the rim and shows a very sound jump hook and has the length to get it off effectively…Is a good athlete, and looks comfortable and fluid running the floor and shows good leaping skills…Will make some explosive finishes at the rim at times if he gets time to gather himself…Sets solid screens and gets some easier finishes in the pick and roll game that way…Doesn’t need plays run through him offensively…Is a solid shot-blocker due to his length…Is a good pick and roll defender…Will scrap and get you some offensive rebounds…Definitely is willing to do dirty work

Weaknesses: Not very skilled offensively and will not be a factor scoring at the NBA level…Has big trouble scoring outside of 5 feet from the rim, which is a concern for someone with his just OK physical profile…Doesn’t show the ability to finish through contact or in traffic, as he needs to gather himself to maximize his leaping skills…Not a great rebounder at all…His average height makes him fairly easy to be shot over by quite a few bigs…Doesn’t have the base strength to consistently deny deep post position against sturdy bigs…A bit foul prone…Tends to tire easily due to his energetic style of play….Was suspended in the NIT for possession of marijuana…Will have to answer questions about why he wanted to leave Pullman so early despite not really being on anyone’s radar professionally

Overall: Casto offers a guy who will do dirty work for team, but his inability to finish in traffic, score outside of the immediate basket area, and his average rebounding skills will hurt him.
