2014 FIBA U18 Americas Championship: World Scouting Reports
June 26, 2014
Mike Schmitz

Strengths
-Solid size for a PF. Average frame but good body for his age.
-Very good shooting stroke. Stretch 4 potential. Pick and pop threat.
-Showed the ability to knock down back shoulder fadeaways out of the post.
-Very mobile. Can put the ball down a little bit. Solid handle. Capable getting to the rim in a straight line. Shows promise shooting off the bounce (1-2 dribble pull ups).
-Moves well laterally for his size. Capable of hedging and recovering. Can keep face up power forwards in front of him. Fairly active off the ball high steal rate.

Weaknesses
-A bit soft. Low rebounding rate. Gets pushed around more than he should. Pursuit is average. Below average post defender. Gets moved by 1-2 dribbles.
-Gets pushed off of the block. No back to the basket game. Mostly a jump shooter at this stage. Doesn't get to the free throw line.
-Average wingspan. Low block rate. Doesn't protect the rim.
-Mobile but lacks explosiveness. Not an above the rim guy. Struggles finishing over length. Low 2P%.
-Nice touch but shoots off of the side of his hand at times. Slight side-spin on his shot.

Outlook Skilled stretch four who can space the floor and put it on the deck occasionally. Moves well for his size. Quick enough to contain the ball in the pick and roll and defend quick power forwards consistently. Needs to improve his toughness in several areas rebounding, establishing post position, and post defense. Isn't an elite athlete or a back to basket threat but should be able to have success at the college level due to his shooting ability. Stretch bigs don't grow on trees. Siewart isn't an NBA prospect but expect him to have success at the mid-major level.
