NBA Comparison: John Salley

Matthew Maurer - 2/12/2007

Strengths: Shows good mobility, running the court with ease Has worked hard to improve his touch around the basket Possesses great hands, capable of catching most passes without fumbling or losing control of the ball Solid rebounder who uses his long arms and hands to tip balls out of position to himself Solid finisher where he wastes little time, keeps the ball high and goes right up For his size he shows above average lateral movement This enables him to make an impact as a very good help defender on the weak side of the court Offensively Hill has a very good jump hook that he converts from a multitude of angles What makes this even more impressive is that Hill will adjust his release on his shot depending on his defender's position Surprisingly an excellent post passer possessing the court vision to hit cutters or pass to the open shooter Shows quality shot blocking ability due to his long arms and top notch timing Does a good job of absorbing contact in the lane and finishing the play for free throw opportunities Plays solid post defense with good intensity and constantly works to keep himself between his man and the basket Has shown signs of an emerging face-up game as Hill now hits shots from 12 feet out Approaches the game with a blue collar attitude, with no problem doing the dirty work Work ethic has been applauded by many throughout his 5 years in college Late bloomer who displays good potential despite being a 5th year senior

Weaknesses: Offensively Hill has developed quality moves but must continue to build on his limited variety of back to basket moves Must continue to expand his shooting range consistency from 12-14 feet out Post footwork must be refined as Hill can go through periods of ineffectiveness Upper body strength isnt terrible, but will need to be upgraded for the NBA To his credit he has the perfect body type to add weight without sacrificing much quickness This lack of strength can work against him when he faces physical forwards limiting his ability to get good position in the post Can be stunted by double teams as he doesnt always read the defense quick enough to react Below average free throw shooter Has a habit of playing his man too aggressive leading to foul trouble Has struggled with confidence issues in the past but has really blossomed this year
