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

Strengths
-Very good athlete. Can finish above the rim and make plays on defense. High steal and block rate.
-Solid size for a PF at 6-9.
-Not a great ball handler but can put it on the deck a little bit.
-High energy player when he's locked in. Potential as a rebounder due to energy and athleticism.
-Can finish over length. Quick jumper. Catches lobs.

Weaknesses
-Very thin upper and lower body. Small frame. Will he be able to fill out?
-Not all that skilled. Poor shooting mechanics elbow flying out, doesn't get his shooting hand under the ball.
-Motor runs hot and cold.
-Below average feel for the game. Gets out of control. Not a very good passer.
-Has potential on defense but lacks the strength to bang with opposing bigs.
-Doesn't handle contact well around the rim.
-Doesn't have great hands. Isn't always ready for pocket passes in the pick and roll.

Outlook Teodoro has solid potential because of his size, mobility and explosiveness. He finishes above the rim with ease and has the agility to be a face-up four once he develops better perimeter skills and a jump shot. He also has the potential to be an excellent defender given his lateral quickness and ability to make plays off the ball. Teodoro needs to work on developing an outside shot, improve his handle and overall feel for the game, and most importantly, get stronger. He has a chance to develop into an intriguing prospect because of his athleticism but he's already 18 and doesn't have a great frame. How much better can he get?
