NBA Comparison: Darius Songaila

Strenghts: Standing 6-10, he has good size for the role also from the muscular standpoint, he’s strong and athletic with solid leaping abilities ... Furthermore, he shows great mobility and explosiveness, being really effective in P&R situations, where his footwork and speed allow him to be a threat after the cut, closing often with dunks ... His game is based facing the basket, with an above the average ability to put the ball on the floor for a big man ... In addition, he shows a remarkable shooting range – beyond the three point line – which makes him a difficult miss match to manage for the typical big men. Defensively he’s a good intimidator especially with the help defense thanks to his ability as a shot blocker.

Weaknesses: Even if he’s solid and well developed from the muscular standpoint he needs to become better at withstanding contact when opponents body him ... His post game needs improvements, he’s not effective as a creator in the post with the ball in his hands ... He needs to work on his shooting mechanics, as he has a slow and unorthodox release, lacking fluidity, that will prove difficult to get off, and also limiting his range ... He has to work on his moves and fakes, and footwork with his back to the basket, and these limitations often lead to turnovers ... He’s more effective with momentum to the basket after the cut ... His team has been giving him a rather limited role this year: work in the paint, screens, rebounds, therefore he still needs to be tested as a reliable offensive option ...
