NBA Scouting Reports, Central Division (Part Two)
April 29, 2008

Overview: A veteran power forward who has bounced around the League as a defense and rebounding specialist. Adequate size, buts it is his length and activity level that make him an effective rebounder. Has a pretty good vertical leap. Nice mobility too. Doesnít bring anything practically to the floor offensively. Wasnít even a big time scorer in college at Tulsa. Has always found a home because of his defense and acumen on the glass. Does a good job guarding the post and blocking shots. Goes after everything on the glass. A little foul prone. Decent rotation big man, but needs a post scorer next to him to allow him to use his skills.

Offense: A mediocre offensive player who gets his offense exclusively from hustle plays. Gets most of his touches off of cuts and offensive rebounds. Shows no discernible jump shot. This lack of touch translates to the foul line where he shoots an incredibly poor percentage. Wonít put the ball on the floor to score. Doesnít show any one-on-one skill. Purely functions as a role player. Does the dirty work inside. Will finish at a high rate when he does get the ball near the rim. Runs the floor hard. Sets good screens. Cleans the offensive glass at a very respectable rate. Not afraid to initiate contact at the rim. Not glamorous, but knows his role and sticks to it.

Defense: A solid defender who will make an effort to keep his man off the block. Doesnít have the strength or athleticism to always make that work. Will scrap for loose balls in the paint. Gets his hands of quite a few. Will block a few shots by virtue of his length and effort. Wonít give up anything easy at the rim. Decent rebounder. Very foul prone. Canít say anything negative about the effort he brings. Incredibly high energy.
