NBA Scouting Reports, Pacific Division (Part Two)
August 5, 2008

Overview: A backup forward who is better known for his defense than for any other aspect of his game. Isnít the type of player that makes a big impact on a game with his athleticism, but is able to do some nice things with his hustle. Put together a good year his last season at Miami of Ohio. Was considered an undersized power forward back then. Could use his athleticism to score better back then. Played in a number of different foreign and domestic leagues early after going undrafted in 1997. Has never played up to his contract in Cleveland, and very well may be out of the league at this point.

Offense: Gets almost fifty percent of his offensive touches off of spot ups. Gets another twenty percent from offensive rebounds. Has a decent, but largely inconsistent jump shot. Can hit from the outside, but needs time and space. Doesnít shoot the same shot every time. Needs to improve his footwork and his release point to get better in that regard. Loves to drive right, but doesnít score efficiently when he does. Isnít a good shooter off the dribble. Not a good ball handler. Canít create his own shot. Works hard off the ball. Runs the floor hard on most possessions. Gets on the offensive glass. Can shoot well from the line, but is very streaky. Doesnít handle the ball very well and canít create his own shot. Isnít much of a passer either.

Defense: Is a prototypical effort defender. Moves his feet well on the defensive end. Will follow his man all over the floor. Refuses to give up easy dribble penetration. Always sprints back on the defensive end. Has a hard time defending players with post skills and wings with elite foot speed. Tends to use his hands to deny penetration when he knows heís beat. Will rebound when he has to.
