Derrick Caracter is not super explosive (plays below the rim) but he gets off the floor very quickly, which really helps make up for that.

Derrick Caracter moves the way very few big men can. Extremely fluid and nimble with superb body control. Body looks great. Excellent hands.

Derrick Caracter is looking absolutely fantastic. Every European GM in the building has a huge hard on for him right now.
