NBA Comparison: Bobby Simmons

Strengths: Versatile combination forward possessing full complement of mismatch tools ... Takes smaller defenders into the post where he has good footwork and quickness ... Punishes less agile bigs with solid handle and craftiness off the bounce- isolation aptitude with variety of spin, cross-over and hesitation moves ... Decisive and aggressive (4.5 fta) finding his way into the paint consistently ... Efficient scorer (50% fg) both within and outside of team offensive structure (12.9 ppg) ... Thrives on contact and is deceptively powerful in compact frame ... Soft touch, uses glass and angles effectively ... Old school style ... Three-pointer has become respectable weapon in his arsenal (1.1 makes, 39%), a statement that could not have been made in 2009 ... Rebounds as a result of instinct and battling (7.7 reb) ... A natural facilitator- skilled passer (2.6 ast) with legitimate court vision and feel ... Has made steady improvements each season, adding new dimensions and fine-tuning strengths that might have been a tad raw ... Deceptive fiurst step and solid crossover are hidden skills in his arsenal ...

Weaknesses: Hill is a tweener forward, lacking the speed and quickness to reside on the wing or the size and strength to contain true 4's ... Exposed moving side to side ... His wide range of skills overshadow physical deficiencies at the collegiate level ... Lacks explosion around the basket, reliant on lower body strength as a shield and long arms ... Shooting stroke has dramatically improved, but he needs space for a deliberate release ... Does not possess natural shooter's footwork ... Pull up jumper off the dribble is non-existent (could function as pick and roll threat with space to work) ... Tendency to get careless (2.5 to), overdribbling and forcing the issue on low percentage pass attempts- his creativity and vision work against him at times ... Has not been forced to take on a primary or even secondary scoring load- that could and should change as a senior ... All in all, Hill is an auxiliary piece at the next level bringing eclectic and oft-forgotten dexterity to the table ...

Notes: Measured 6'6.5 (in shoes) 229 lbs, with a 6'9.5 wingspan at the 2012 LeBron James Skills Academy
