NBA Comparison: Darius Songaila

Strengths: Bairstow is a brute with the ability to knock down the mid range jumper ... Hustles extremely hard and will bang down low ... Will give up his body for the good of the team ... Puts a lot of pressure on his man to be physical; gets to the free throw line (8.8 FTA in 2013-14 was good for 4th nationally in this category) ... Crashes the boards, has a great motor ... Really works for post position, and good at sealing his man ... Does the majority of his work offensively in the lane and on the block, but can also knock down elbow and baseline jumpers ... Was one of the nation's most improved players between the 2012-13 and 2013-14 seasons; even showed the ability to do some shot blocking his senior season, although this may not ultimately translate as a part of his pro game ... Has good measurables for the power forward position (has almost identical measurements and athleticism numbers to draft-class mate Julius Randle) ... High percentage shooter (74% FT Shooter, 56% FG senior season with Lobos) ...

Weaknesses: Born in 1990, he will turn 24 later this season, decreasing his upside substantially ... Below the rim athlete and below average athlete by NBA standards ... In college was able to overpower opponents; may be a different story in the pros ... Relatively inexperienced, having arguably only played a significant role for the Lobos his senior season ... Still developing in terms of his feel for the game ... Not particularly effective on the fast break ... Prone to "tunnel vision" offensively, where once he commits to a move, he loses awareness of teammates and help defense ...

Notes: Native of Australia, and attended the hallowed Australian Institute of Sport that has produced a number of NBA players ... Bairstow is very much a late bloomer ... Had a minor role for the Lobos his freshman and sophomore seasons, and did not really break out until the 2013-14 season as a legitimate pro prospect ... Was part of a formidable college front line at New Mexico along with teammate Alex Kirk, who surprised many by entering the 2014 NBA draft as an early entrant ... Measured 6'9.75" in shoes 7'0.75" wingspan at the 2014 Draft Combine ...
