NBA Comparison: Kosta Koufos

Strengths: 7-footer with above average agility and athleticism ... Has excellent size with a 7'3 wingspan on a 7 foot frame ... Came into UNLV and proved himself as a force as both a rebounder and shot blocker ... Lefty big with soft touch on his shot and shows the makings of becoming an excellent face up and possibly low post scorer ... Good feel for the game ... A finesse power forward / center prospect ... Smooth athlete with good ability to run the floor, play in transition ... Can face up and knock down mid-range shots with some consistency ... Nice passer, who can usually find the open man when doubled .... Doesn't try too hard to be flashy or make a ton of mistakes ... If anything plays "within himself" too much, as it seems he's capable of producing more ... Solid character kid, who shows desire and coachability ... Has the potential to be a two way player ...

Weaknesses: Has all the attributes to stand out but has left many scratching their heads as to why he doesn't play to his ability more consistently ... Intensity and focus can improve ... Had games where he really struggled to get on track ... Laid back personality follows him onto the court at times ... Toughness and confidence should improve over time as he gains strength and experience ... Needs to develop more nastiness and seek out contact ... Right (off) arm doesn't straighten out completely (Similar to Brandon Rush). It may cause some red flags in physicals but obviously hasn't hindered him much ... A shy kid who should work on becoming more vocal ... Not the most physical of players ... While he has decent leg and body strength for his age, his shoulders lack bulk and adding upperbody and core strength will benefit him. May always struggle to add ideal strength ... His post game is affected by lack of physcality and strength ... Should look to develop better post skills, fight for position on the block ... Likely to take some time to realize his talent, making him a candidate to fail with his first team and succeed with his second or third ... Shot just 62% from the FT line, which should have been better considering form and touch ... Had a freak knee injury during freshman year but bounced back quickly, only missing a few weeks of action ...

Notes: Measured 6'10, 241.2 lbs, with a 7'2.75 wingspan and 9'1 reach at the 2014 USA U18 tryouts ... Measured 7'0 (in shoes) 224 lbs, with a 7'2 wingspan at he 2014 LeBron James Skills Academy ... Measured 6'10 without shoes, 6'10.5 with shoes, 232 lbs, with a 7'3 wingspan and 9'0.5 standing reach at the 2014 USA Junior National Team Mini Camp ... Played basketball at the same class and high school, Bishop Gorman, that Snoop Dogg's son (Cordell Broadus) played football ... Was considered one of the top prospects throughout his high school career, climbing as high as number 1 at points while an underclassmen ...
