Strengths:

-Big bodied big man
-Solid frame and size
-Plays hard
-More explosive than he looks on first glance
-Very good outside shooter
-Made 42% of 3-pointers in Spain this season

Weaknesses:

-No post game
-Average defensive rebounder
-Lacks some lateral quickness to guard power forwards
-Rumored to be 2-3 years older than listed age

Outlook:

Zhigulin dominated the NIJT qualifiers in L'Hospitalet (20 points, 7 rebounds), but was fairly quiet in Istanbul (9+5), partially due to seeing fewer minutes. With his size, perimeter shooting ability and intensity level, he seems to fit the mold of an ACB rotation big man, although Barcelona may be out of his league.
