NBA Comparison:

Strengths: Physical big man with a severely limited skill-set ... Excellent all-around athletic tools ... Very good jumping ability ... Recorded a max vertical leap at the 2012 NBA draft combine of 40.5” ... Good, but not elite-level explosiveness ... Prototypical size for an NBA center (was recently measured at 6'11.75" in shoes) ... Active offensively ... Cuts well, and is receptive to quick passes in the paint ... Moves his feet remarkably well for a player his size ... Solid touch around the rim ... Has a nice hook shot that can be effective against smaller defenders ... Is very efficient (shot 61% from the field his senior year) ... Knows him limitations and doesn't make a ton of mistakes ... Great rebounder ... Creates a lot of put-back opportunities for himself by crashing the offensive glass ... Uses his leaping ability and length to tip a lot of rebounds to teammates that would have otherwise been out of reach ... Plays with a lot of energy ... Good motor ... Has interesting role-playing potential ...

Weaknesses: Limited offensive potential ... His underwhelming 6.6 points per game average this season was actually the best of his four-year college career ... Doesn't shoot a ton of free-throws (2.2 free-throws attempted per game), and makes a below-average percentage of the few he does take (63%) ... Hasn't shown a consistent jump shot from anywhere outside of eight feet ... Limited move-set in the post, and tends to struggle against bigger players ... Aggressive mentality (especially when chasing loose balls) can get him into foul trouble quickly, though he's managed to cut his foul rate every year since he's been at school ...

Overall: Plumlee doesn't have a lot to offer an NBA team outside of rebounding ... He lacks any means of consistently creating his own offense, or at least any offensive means that he was able to display at Duke ... His physical profile and rebounding ability might be able to get him drafted in the second round if a team is looking for an energetic role-player to hit the boards coming off the bench …
