NBA Comparison: Ruben Boumtje-Boumtje

Strengths: Bigman with excellent length and defensive potential ... 7-foot-3 wingspan gives him exceptional length and makes him a potential rim protector ... His bread and butter is his ability to defend as he shows solid lateral foot speed and the ability to smother opponents and limit their open looks ... Shows natural timing on blocked shots, and does a solid job of not biting on fakes and exploding on blocked shots ... Surprising touch on his mid range jumper considering his lack of all around offensive skills ... Uses his length, size and ability to leap off of 2 feet well to grab rebounds ... Has become an effective half court player when given an open look from mid range ... Scores mainly on face up shots within 10-12 feet of the basket ... Put on solid strength over the past year and after appearing to lack strength early in his college career, it no longer looks to be a deficiency ... Solid decision maker and passer for a big, had a positive a/to ratio as a senior ... Considered hard working player and a high character guy who was an excellent run/jump athlete before becoming a collegian and joining Louisville ...

Weaknesses: Lacks great post skills, scoring most of his points on open looks around the basket or face up shots ... Limited offensively and likely won't ever be much of a scorer. Even as a senior failed to average in double digits ... FG% is low for a post guy showing his inability to convert a high amount of inside baskets ... Midrange shooting is good but touch on plays around the basket is average at best ... Will need to develop a back to the basket game and go to move ... Not a very effective transition player. A bit of a plodder ... Lacks great hands ... Leg strength and balance is questionable as he is much better while on balance and explodes off two feet much better than one foot ... Lack of body control limits his effectiveness, making plays in transition or when moving toward the basket ... Stiff legs. Legs and ankles appear to be very tight, limiting his ability to make adjustments on the fly ... Dieng is already 23, so his upside is questionable ...
