NBA Comparison: Duane Causwell

Strengths: Young player with a sculpted frame, great size and length ... Shows nice touch when close to the basket ... Lots of willingness to bang down low and an awareness of his role ... Very broad shoulders which help him gain space in the post ... High release on his shot and seems to know to keep the ball high ... Solid offensive rebounder with skill at boxing out ... Will hustle for loose balls ... 7-4 wingspan is put to good use as a disruption in defending the post ... Strength to be a good rebounder at either end of the court ... Not a complete liability at the foul stripe during his play in the French Pro B level, shooting 81-118 (68.6%)

Weaknesses: Lacks lateral quickness and very little lift ... Below the rim player will have difficulty defending quicker , more athletic big men ... Has yet to play major minutes of higher level pro basketball, a definite long term project ... Lacks much of a post arsenal beyond putbacks and garbage baskets ... Shooting mechanics make it difficult to see him stretching the floor or providing much offense outside of the paint ... Very likely to have foul trouble playing at a higher level ... Hands are not great, can bobble passes which limits him as an offensive option ... Will need work on conditioning ... Plays hard in spurts, though can lose his focus and underwhelm with energy ... Still learning where to be on the floor and needs development on court IQ

Notes: Measured at 6-11 (in shoes) with a 7-4 wingspan at the 2013 Nike Hoop Summit ... If he stays in the 2013 Draft, which seems to be the intention, will be one of the youngest draftees and will not turn 19 until the end of November ... Has put up 16.7 ppg (65.2% FG) and 9.9 rpg for Pro B team Boulogne-sur-Mer, finishing in the top 10 in both categories ... Nickname is "Mam" ... name pronounced Mo-ham-ma-du Jah-teh ... Could turn into a nice back-up center and seems primed to be a second round "stash" pick
