NBA Comparison: Alain Digbeu /Sam Young

Strengths: Aboudou possesses NBA level athleticism and strength for a wing player ... He is very adept in reading the defense and back cutting off the ball and finishing with authority with alley-oops ... Likes going baseline and good at finishing around the rim ... Looks for easy baskets and goes strong to the hole which has helped him keep a 45% shooting clip from the field which is good for a wing player ... His body is NBA ready which is rare for players coming from France ... Has played and seen personal and team success at the highest level of competition in Europe ... Has played in the highest French league for the top team for a few years now with Chalon, who were champions of France in 2012 ... Played over 120 minutes in Euroleague competition in 2013 shooting 49.5% from the field ... Has learned how to come off the bench and be a role player for elite teams which should help him transitioning to the NBA ... Because of his athleticism and strength, has been asked and shown the ability to defend some 4's ...

Weaknesses: He has played a 3/4 for Chalon, mostly roaming the baseline and will need to transition to more of a 2/3 wing perimeter player to have success in the NBA ... Could be closer to 6'5 than 6'6, so he's undersized for a SF ... While his shooting form has good fundamentals he has neither confidence in his jump shot nor great results ... He is a high 50% to low 60% free throw shooter and shoots 3 pointers in the low 30% ... Tentative to take any jump shot outside of a wide open three ... Does not have a mid range game ... Needs to find a counter move other than driving to the hole ... Handles still need some tightening ... Only averaged 16 minutes per game as a role player for Chalon ...

Outlook: You can not teach the natural strength and athleticism that Aboudou possesses ... With some work on his outside shot he could become a rotational player at the NBA level. It would be of no surprise if an NBA team picks him somewhere in the second round ...
