NBA Comparison: Bernard James

Strengths: 6-10 with legitimate length and some skill to stretch the floor ... Showed a great deal of improvement during his last two years at the college level, particularly during his senior season when he was a major factor in the Hurricanes garnerning a 2 seed in the NCAA Tournament ... High release on his shot with range out to the 3 point line, can draw the defense away from the paint ... Can put the ball on the floor and get opponents off balance due to the threat of his jump shooting ... Shows solid touch near the rim, with fadeaway shots that with his length are very tough to defend ... Has deceptive athleticism and bounce for his size ... Part of one of the nations better defenses, showed ability as a help defender and timing as a shot blocker ... Showed a lot of improvement as a rebounder ... Has a more NBA ready body than most draftees, though that may have to do with his age ... Did not foul at a very high rate during his two seasons at Miami (FL) ... Was able to play PF for a majority of his time at Miami (FL), while many would be relegated to the C position, should help with his adjustment to his likely pro position

Weaknesses: Already 25 years of age, meaning he has entered his athletic prime and was quite a bit older than the vast majority of comepetition he faced ... Hard to believe he will become radically different from the player he already is, which more than likely limits him to being a rotation option at best down the line ... While he did display some improvement, his post game was still very limited and he tended to avoid contact ... Not a great offensive rebounder and at best average on the defensive glass as well ... Rarely used his athleticism to make cuts or plays near the basket ... Did not get to the foul line at a high rate, nor did he ever convert at the rate one might expect with his shooting touch ... While more developed than most PF prospects in the draft, still has work to do in that area and will likely take some time to be a contributor ... Was unable to break the rotation at Florida even while being a highly regarded HS prospect, one has to wonder what took him so long to develop into a college level contributor ... His level of intensity can fade as the game wears on, can suffer from loss of concentration

Notes: Native of Doula, Cameroon, came to the US by way of France at the age of 16 ... Highly regarded high school prospect who almost fell off the draft radar during his time at Florida ... Came back with a vengeance during the end of his junior and his senior season, showing rare ability for a player with his size ... 2nd Team All-ACC selection during this past 2012-13 season ... Averaged 19.5 ppg and 8 rpg against Duke this past season, including a 90-63 victory ... His age could possibly be seen as a player who is maybe a bit further along in the maturation process, which could actually make him an enticing 2nd round selection with his skill package ... If Kadji goes undrafted, will still be an absolute Summer League player and a likely training camp invitee
