NBA Comparison: Victor Claver/Jonas Jerebko

Strenghts: This past summer he worked a lot on his upper body, becoming stronger and developing a solid frame ... His improvement has been effective since it has been accomplished without losing any mobility and explosiveness ... As a 6-9 PF, he has good size for the role, combined with excellent mobility and quickness ... His game perfectly suits the evolution of modern basketball, with the need for big men able to switch in the P&R and hit shots from distance ... Hernangomez is excellent in P&R, perfectly exploiting his ability to screen and slide with timing and quickness ... He has shown intriguing range from 15-20 feet, opening the court in pick and pop situations and creating space in the middle of the area ... He has shown the ability to attack the basket when served in movement after the cut, often drawing contacts and + 1 situations ... What impresses the most about him is his stamina, he’s constantly moving, hustling for a rebound or a loose ball, finding ways to impact his team, even when not directly involved in the offense ... He shots 75% from free throw line, solid and an improvable percentage.

Weaknesses: He still has to work on his offensive skills, as he lacks a solid traditional post game ... He still struggles in taking position back to the basket and using his pivot foot ... Lacks a solid hook shot and he needs to work on his ability to create space using his body in the painted area ... He has to work on his shot mechanics and to develop his range behind the three point line, his next step to become a modern stretch forward ... His energy is impressive, but sometimes he lacks focus and discipline, especially on the defensive side, where he has to improve the positioning ... He often plays for the steal and he puts a lot of energy and effort, but this sometimes puts him out of position or in mismatch situations.

Notes: The younger brother of Willy – "Juancho", currently playing with Real Madrid ... He was part of U18 and U20 Spanish national teams ... This summer he was included in the top 5 of U20 European championship in Lignano ... He’s putting up 10 points and 7 rebounds on average in ACB thus far, with a season high of 20 points and 10 rebounds against Badalona.
