Orlando Pre-Draft Camp: Day 3 (Last Update: 10:46 AM)
June 8, 2006

Hicks had a strong showing going against some stiff competition. Hicks squared off against Kenny Adeleke for a number of stretches and held his own. Hicks used his anticipation as much as his explosive power to grab a number of contested rebounds, especially on the offensive end. Hicks also showed a decent touch on his jumper as he hit one baseline shot and surprised everyone with a picture-perfect 3 ball.

Defensively, Hicks was physical without fouling and used his timing to block a few shots. Although he was aggressive he was able to show patience on the block by not jumping at Adeleke’s myriad of fakes and footwork, which allowed him to block 2 of his attempts. Great overall showing for Hicks.

Portsmouth Invitational Tournament: Recap

After a very marginal first game, Hicks exploded in his second and third for two truly monster performances. Relentlessly attacking the boards on both sides of the floor, Hicks scored plenty of putbacks, many of which were emphatic jams. Hicks didn’t have the overall defensive impact one would expect from him, though. Hicks is undersized for power forward, listed at a generous 6’6, so he has an uphill battle to succeed in the NBA. He would do well to improve his mid-range shooting if he wants to have a chance in the league. He has an inconsistent release on his shot, and doesn’t have the greatest of hands overall, something that causes him to bobble many passes or putback attempts. If he could improve his touch, develop a better shot, and show some more defensive prowess, he may be able to carve himself a niche in the NBA.
