    NBA Comparison: Austin Daye/Kyle Korver

    Strengths: Sharp-shooting forward with a high amount of role-playing potential ... Excellent shooting mechanics, featuring an extremely high and quick release ... Gets squared up to the basket in a flash ... Outstanding catch and shoot ability will make him dangerous coming off of screens ... Great shooting range, will have very little trouble adjusting to the NBA three-point line ... Not exceptionally quick, but shows good mobility running the floor ... Good enough ball-handler to create his own shot, but prefers just one or two quick dribbles before firing away ... Strong court-vision and impressive passing ability ... Very active player that always plays hard on both ends of the floor ... Standing 6'10" will present him an advantage playing on the perimeter in the NBA ... Solid character guy who works hard to improve ...

    Weaknesses: A little one dimensional as a shooter since he lacks great run/jump athleticism ... Foot speed is below average by NBA standards ... Needs to add weight ... Only weighs 211 pounds, which makes him quite thin for either forward position... Doesn't stand out as a rebounder or defender... Though he shows solid finishing ability in transition, he isn't much of a threat to drive to the rim off the dribble, which leads to defenders crowding him ... Is prone to forcing questionable shots ... Has a rather average wingspan of 6'10"...

    Notes: An intriguing option in the late first round as a young player to leave developing in Europe ... Was described by Nike International Director Rich Shoebrooks as being the top shooter to play on the Hoop Summit International squad since Dirk Nowitzki ...


    Check out the link and the youtube video. Yeah he airballs a few shots but is shooting stroke is really really nice and he makes a couple of really athletic moves for being 6'10''. Does kind of remind me of Dirk.

    I was looking into this guy a few weeks back. His game sorta emulates Hedo's. Can handle the ball, pass, and shoot. All while being 6'10. But he's got short arms. Still definitely a sleeper.
