NBA Comparison: DeJuan Blair

Strengths: Stokes is a powerful power forward who is a load to stop on the low block … Great at establishing position around the basket, which is reflected by his 53% shooting from the field this past season … Great rebounder for his size; averaged 10.6 RPG last season … Plays with a high motor and crashes the boards/boxes out tenaciously … Plays with a high IQ and has a good team-first attitude for a guy trying to make it in the league … Great touch around the rim. Very efficient finisher in the post …Very difficult player to back down in the post … Gets to the line a fair amount. Averaged over 6 free throw attempts per game this season, where he connected at a rate of 70% … Rarely has an "off night". Recorded 22 double-doubles this year … Gets up and down the floor quickly in transition …Decent jumper from out to mid-range … With a 7'1" wingspan, Stokes has fantastic length … Good at using a few quick dribbles to get around his man in the paint … Great hands … Has gotten more comfortable playing away from the basket this season on both ends of the court…

Weaknesses: Undersized from a height standpoint for an NBA post player, although this can be alleviated some by his wingspan, strength and motor. Appears around 6'7 to 6'7.5 in shoes ... Will struggle to defend face-up 4's on the perimeter due to his below-average lateral quickness…Somewhat limited offensive game, but he does contribute a lot in other areas…Until this year's postseason, Stokes' teams at Tennessee always seemed to under perform…

Overall: Stokes is a powerful and well-built power forward who has the maturity and the skill set to contribute as a role player right away for an NBA team. He's a skilled post scorer and a tenacious rebounder and could get a look in the late first round…

Notes: Measured 6'9 (in shoes) 256 lbs, with a 7'1 wingspan at the 2011 LeBron James Skills Academy
