NBA Comparison: Jason Maxiell/Donnell Harvey

Strengths: A raw physical specimen who chose not to play NCAA ball and turned pro (D-League) out of high school, and will be eligible for the 2010 draft ... Will have a good chance to be drafted due to his upside ... Very explosve attacking the basket ... Despite a lack of great bulk, shows a willingness to play physical and bang with bigger players inside ... Runs the floor well, good foot speed, a very fluid athlete who plays with boundless energy ... Owns a big wingspan. Plays much bigger than 6-8 ... An excellent rebounder ... Also helped by all the undersized power forwards making it in the league right now ... Offensively he shows the ability to knock down his jump shot and he should be able to develop into a strength ...

Weaknesses:
A bit of a tweener, currently lacking the bulk (and standard height) to play in the post ... Needs to add a significant amount of strength to play inside at the NBA level ... Still a work in progress offensively. Was so dominant athletically in high school that he wasn't forced to fully develop skills, playing against better athletes this will be imparitive ... Shows some touch on his shot but needs to work on post moves and add range ... Shows some ability to face the basket and use the dribble, but won't be confused for a small forward. Lacks the ball handling, passing ability, and outside shot to play strictly on the perimeter ...
