NBA Comparison: Brian Cardinal

Strength: Hummel is a prospect who has been on the radar since his Fr. season in 2007-2008…Very experienced player…Pretty good size for a wing prospect at 6’8 with a decent 218 lb frame…Was an impact player immediately upon entering college…Fundamentally sound…A pretty well-rounded offensive player…Played 3 positions (SG,SF,PF) in college, being a very tricky matchup for teams…Is most effective as a jump shooter…Has NBA range…At his best spotting up, but can hit some shots off screens…Has the size and release speed to get shots off effectively…Nice ability to pull-up and hit shots against closeouts…Plays real low mistake basketball, averaged less than a turnover a night as a Sr. in 32 mpg…Nice basic passing and ball-handling skills…Shows some ability to post up, given his experience playing PF…Does a good job rebounding for a player who functioned often as an undersized PF…Willing to work defensively, takes charges and is a pretty assignment savvy…Showed fgood leadership skills in college….Showed great perseverance playing through 2 knee injuries in the same

Weaknesses: Hummel is a low level athlete for NBA standards…His lack of quickness and athleticism limit him on both ends of the floor…Not going to be able to get around guys in the NBA…Wasn’t a very efficient finisher around the rim for a player who was 6’8 and played PF…Will probably struggle to defend NBA SF’s, doesn’t have the lateral quickness to stop the speedy slashers wings…Pretty basic all-around player, not going to make wow plays…His knee injuries are an obvious worry, his had 2 different ACL surgeries and back problems in the past…His knee surgeries have put a damper on his already underwhelming athleticism, and made him somewhat easier to defend…Doesn’t have the size to play PF like he did a lot of the time at Purdue, nor the quickness to be a mismatch

Overall: Hummel was an effective and very efficient player in college for some very well-coached and competitive Purdue teams…He has the jumper and size to be a jump shooter for a team, and he’s smart and willing enough on the defensive end to be masked…A coach could be willing to overlook his lack of athleticism and extensive injury history given his high basketball IQ and ability to be a locker room presence
