NBA Comparison: Juwan Howard

Aran Smith - 2/9/2008

Strengths: Fluid bigman with excellent length and shooting touch Shows a lot of offensive promise with great touch on his shot within 8 feet of the basket Very effective at the pick and roll Has good hands and a terrific frame He should be able to put on additional weight allowing him to play more physical Huge wingspan gives him the length to play both the 4 and 5 positions at the next level as his body matures Neither incredibly fast or explosive, but he is an above average athlete with excellent physical gifts Still prone to making a careless pass here and there, but has above average vision and can develop into a quality passer Has the length and athleticism to become a solid shot blocker His rebounding should improve as he continues to get stronger

Weaknesses: Struggles to create offense for himself Really has a ways to go in developing reliable post moves Seems to shy away from contact, even though he has the body mass and strength to bang A bit of a finesse guy. Must add some strength and develop a nastier disposition Added leg strength will help him to battle inside for post position Loses focus and intensity at times, likely more to do with his age and lack of experience than anything, but it shows hes not ready for the NBA yet Has good touch but will need to extend his range. A consistent 12-15 foot jump would make him even more effective offensively Has a lot of upside, but must develop better court awareness and understanding, helping on defense where to position himself for rebounds etc

Notes: Playing and practicing alongside Al Horford and Joakim Noah as a freshman was a terrific opportunity to raise his level of play, and learn what it takes to be a pro
