USA Basketball Junior Nat'l Team Mini-Camp Scouting Reports: Big Men October 10, 2015 Omari Spellman, 6' 9”, PF/C, North Royalton, OH, Class of 2016
-6' 9' with a 7' 2” wingspan
-Can really offensive rebound. Uses his strength and mobility to overpower opponents or beat them to the spot.
-Fairly light on his feet despite being 287 pounds
-Impressive touch on his jumper for a player that size. Can stretch it out to three. Comfortable facing up, jab stepping and stroking mid-range jumpers.
-Nice touch out of the post.
-Doesn't shy away from contact at all
-Very good basketball instincts
-Way overweight at 287 pounds. Coming off of an injury, which may have contributed to the high weight (was only 269 pounds at the Nike Academy)
-Struggles with pace of play. Gets tired easily.
-Has issues finishing over length. Surprisingly fleet of foot but still isn't an explosive leaper, especially from a standstill.
-Doesn't get great extension on his jump hook
-Better offensive rebounder than defensive rebounder at this stage
-Motor runs hot and cold, in large due to his conditioning
-Lateral quickness is average. Is he quick enough to guard power forwards?
