NBA Comparison: Chris Kaman

Strengths: Mullens is a talented big man with good athleticism and upside ... Possesses excellent NBA size, with a big wingspan and good length for his position ... Fundamentally sound for his position ... Most of his points come off pick and rolls, put-backs and second shots opportunities, as well as dunks around the basket and alley-oops ... Looks to score almost every time he catches the ball on the low post (very explosive off the floor going for dunks and alley-oops)... Very aggressive big man with nice body control when attacking the basket ... Possesses terrific hands and can catch almost every pass under or around the rim ... His favorite move on the post is to catch the ball in his comfort zone, drop step and dunk or turn to his left shoulder to shoot a right hand hook shot ... Does a good job of protecting his hook shot with his left hand ... Mullens is a good finisher around the basket. Has a very nice jump-shot with good mechanics and form ... Showed the ability to step out and shoot ... Runs the floor well for his size and has decent quickness ... Solid shot blocker due to his long arms and timing (has potential to become even better) ... Takes advantage of his athleticism and long arms to rebound the ball on both ends of the floor, but can become more aggressive ...

Weaknesses:
Lacks experience and readiness for the NBA. Has average basketball IQ so far ... Motvation level is a question mark ... His offensive skills are still raw and he needs to develop a go-to move ... Showed that he can be turnover prone .18 A/T ratio (vs. Illinois 4 TO and Wisconsin 5 TO) ... Defensively he doesn’t hold his position well and gets outplayed and outsmarted by opponents (can look lazy getting back on defensive end). Poor passer .3 AST ... Average rebounder considering his size, body and athleticism 4.7 RPG.

*At this point he is one or two years away from developing into a NBA player.

Strengths:
Bigman with a smooth offensive repertoire, including drop steps , face the basket skills and good touch … Elite level fluidity and agility plus a top shelf NBA center body … Runs the floor very light on his feet … Has a big frame with strong shoulders and long arms … Should be able to put on another 20 pounds without losing much mobility … Enjoys contact and fights for boards and position under the basket … Athletic, good explosiveness … Has a good feel for the game … Very good post skills with the ability to face the basket and hit shots out to the perimeter … Creates a big target inside Solid rebounder, understands how to box out … Uses the glass well a là Tim Duncan …

Weaknesses: Doesn't always take over the way hes capable … Detractors point to the fact that he hasn't developed into a center that dominates every time out … Must develop more of a killer instinct. He has the intensity and desire, just needs to sustain it more consistently … Not a huge shot blocker, has solid leaping ability and the ability to become a better defender with work at it …
