USA Basketball Development Camp Measurements and Analysis
October 9, 2014
Stephen Zimmerman measured 6'10 without shoes on to go along with a 7'3 wingspan. Zimmerman's 241-pound frame is the real story here, as he's gained almost 20 pounds since the Nike Skills Academy earlier this year. Zimmerman did not have a great spring or summer, as he appeared to be growing into his frame and did not seem to know how to carry the extra weight. This past weekend he certainly had a bounce in his step and was widely lauded as one of the most impressive performers in attendance.

2014 FIBA U18 Americas Championship: US Scouting Reports
June 25, 2014
Mike Schmitz

-Solid size and length for a power forward.
-Very mobile for his size.
-Can finish above the rim off of one foot or with momentum in transition.
-Excellent passer.
-Can handle.
-Potential as a rebounder and shot blocker.
-High IQ defender.
-Moves well laterally for his size.
-Very good shooting touch. Good in mid-range spots.
-Good touch with his left hand.

-Gets pushed off of his spots offensively.
-Wants to shoot jump shots rather than operate on the block.
-Not a great rim protector.
-Struggles finishing through contact.
-Lacks explosiveness from a standstill position.
-Doesn't have a wide array of post moves when he is able to catch on the block.
-Right elbow doesn't bend all the way.

Outlook Very intriguing prospect due to his combination of length, mobility, shooting ability, passing instincts and overall IQ. Zimmerman most likely projects as a perimeter-oriented stretch power forward at the NBA level due to his shooting ability, handle and passing instincts combined with his lack of toughness. Zimmerman needs to improve his overall mentality and toughness in order to hang as a rebounder and defender but he should be able to carve out a niche as a skilled big man who can get up and down.
