NBA Comparison:

Strengths: Near 7'0" center that uses his size very well ... Big frame, weighs about 260 lbs with room to add a little more muscle ... Solid quickness and speed for his size ... Lives around the basket ... Scores well in the post because of his size and soft touch ... Has a nice looking baby push shot when he turns over his left shoulder, and a developing left-handed hook when he turns over his right ... Keeps the ball high and away from any secondary defenders ... An excellent mid-range shooter ... Has a great looking turnaround jumper, with a feathery touch out to about 16 feet ... Very good free-throw shooter (shot over 78% from the stripe in 2011-2012) ... Adequate defender ... Solid area rebound because of his size ...

Weaknesses: Not much of an athlete ... Doesn't explode off his feet ... Plays below the rim … Lacks great finishing ability ... While he has a solid all-around skill-set, he's not exceptional at anything ... Doesn't have a go-to move or a surefire way to score against NBA talent ...

Overall: Hamilton possesses both size and skill, but won't stand out in the NBA in any way ... His potential is limited by his lack of athleticism and he really doesn't profile as a future starter ... However, if a team is looking for size off the bench, Hamilton could prove useful and provide value as a mid-late second round pick ...
