2015 Nike Hoop Summit Final Recap
April 11, 2015

Stephen Zimmerman – 8 PTS, 2 REBS, 4-for-6 FGS in 17 min

Although he only played 17 minutes Zimmerman was the US Team's best big man on Saturday. He showcased his mobility and athleticism with two straight line drives and finishes over length (once vs Labissiere), knocked down a fairly deep mid-range jumper, and finished a put back. Zimmerman also did a decent job defending on the interior, collecting two steals and two blocks despite his developing frame. The US Team's big men struggled in scrimmages the week leading up to the game but Zimmerman showed up on Saturday and should be a very effective college player on both ends wherever he decides to go.

2015 Nike Hoop Summit: USA Junior National Select Team Measurements
April 10, 2015

Stephen Zimmerman
Height (w/ shoes): 7-0
Height (w/o shoes): 6-10.5
Weight: 234.6
Wingspan: 7-3
Standing Reach: 9-1

A legitimate 7-footer in shoes, Zimmerman's closest comparison physically appears to be Chris Bosh who measured 6'11.5 in shoes with a 7'3.5 wingspan and a 225-pound frame. Zimmerman has a rather slight frame even though his weight doesn't rank particularly poor among big men selected in the lottery over the last decade. Among the players assembled here, Zimmerman is the player whose physical development is worth monitoring as his combination of size and length is already plenty intriguing.

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.
