NBA Scouting Reports, Southeastern Division (Part 2)
May 9, 2008
Overview: A jump-shooting power forward who plays almost exclusively facing the basket. Decent size for his position, but not very athletic. Conditioning needs improvement. Adequate physical strength. Makes a living as a jump shooter, but brings some other things to the table on the offensive end as well. Still a little bit too one-dimensional. A poor defender due to his lack of athleticism, which makes it tough for him to contribute offensively when his jumper isn't falling. Developed his scorer's mentality during his four seasons at Illinois. Won the Big 10 Player of the Year Award as a senior. Hasn't experienced much success in the NBA just yet. Could be a nice role player in the right setting. Father, Norm, played parts of two seasons in the NBA.

Offense: Gets almost half of his offense as a spot up shooter. Will also step out to the perimeter and work the pick and pop and run off of screens for open jumpers. Functions almost exclusively as a shooting specialist, which he is very effective at. Very smooth stroke for his size. Can shoot the three with some consistency. Good foul shooter as well. Can't do much damage off the dribble. Not a very good finisher due to his lack of athleticism. Somewhat one dimensional, but he plays his role well. Doesn't turn the ball over, but doesn't make an impact on the offense glass either.

Defense: Has a tough time defending his position due to his lack of athleticism. Doesn't display the foot speed necessary to keep up with the more athletic power forwards in the game today. Displays average strength on the block, but isn't strong enough to defend traditional back to the basket players. Needs to bring better energy to defensive end to maximize what he does have rather than being the foul prone liability that he tends to be right now.
