In this scenario, one player has emerged among the French crop. Alexis Tanghe is not only about physical gifts, he also enjoys a nice array of skills. Not as perimeter oriented as the previous forwards mentioned, Tanghe shows a much more developed physical profile. He's 6-9 at the very least, perhaps around 6-10 already, and enjoys a terrific frame, with very good shoulders and more strength than your typical cadet. His athleticism is remarkable as well; leaping ability, quickness and explosiveness in the desired amount.

Although he can put the ball on the floor, he doesn't look like too much of a slasher, basically limiting his face-up production to his perimeter jumpers, where he shows nice form on his release and some (improvable) accuracy. He has a solid post game, having good use of his body but also displaying nice footwork. He can finish with both hands near the rim, even using semi-hooks, although his left hand still needs work. He also has the reactiveness to easily dunk the ball if there's not much opposition. Reliable on defense, helping in the rebounding department (particularly on the offensive glass), good running the court, he was one of the steadiest contributors on the disappointing French team, and a breath of fresh air between so many track-and-field players.
