NBA Comparison: Mason Plumlee

Strengths: Mobile and highly coordinated big man with an all-purpose skill set. Measured in at 6’11 (with shoes) at the NBA combine, and has added 20+ lbs. of muscle since arriving on campus a string bean … 6.2% body fat … Powell remains a free and easy mover despite upgrades to his frame … He hovers, no clunking … Fluid gait … Runs the floor productively with well above average end to end speed ... He was Stanford’s most reliable playmaker/facilitator by a wide margin as a senior (3.1 assists). Excellent distributor, surveying the action and possesses a natural guard feel … Basketball IQ is a considerable checkmark in his favor … Face up 4-man – quickness and ball handling variety … Jump shot stroke looks pure in the mid-range and collegiate three-pointer was not foreign to his repertoire (46% as junior, 14 total makes) … 80% free throw shooter in 2012-2013 … Projection as pick-and-pop threat is entirely foreseeable … Lateral agility is an asset on the defensive end where he can hedge and return to position comfortably … Versatility to kill center minutes at 6’11 … No defining quality but package to be immediate piece of the puzzle … High character kid that interviewed well during the combine process ... Has more potential than the average senior ...

Weaknesses: His junior season was highlighted several times above and that’s indicative (for the wrong reasons) … The lack of consistent progress from Powell has been baffling … Given his size and skill level combo, the results don’t add up … A solid post player statistically but limited as he can only finish going over his left shoulder with his right hand, which makes him far too predictable ... Much of the ups and downs in performance can be attributed to lack of core strength and less than ideal on-court aggression … Junior to Senior declines in three-point percentage (46% to 26%), FT percentage (80% to 69%) and rebounding (8.4 to 6.9) are more difficult to explain … On-court temperament leaves something to be desired … Chasson Randle is a nice guard, but he should not be outshooting Powell 12.5 to 10.8 … Smooth operator but not an explosive athlete – this is particularly true in traffic … 7’0”5 wingspan was shorter than expected … Averaged less than a shot block per game for his collegiate career … While narrow shoulders might always restrict his build, he’ll need to hit the weight room for core and lower body ... Not much of a vocal leader ...
