NBA Comparison: Thabo Sefolosha

Strenghts: Standing 6-7 (even if seems a little less) he has excellent size for an NBA backcourt player ... He’s a solid athlete, lower body is well developed, giving him good speed and solid leaping ability, combined with a long wingspan ... He has a decent handle and shows some ability to create from the dribble, even if he’s more effective when helped by a screen or when he’s assisted in off the ball situations ... Despite being a natural scorer, he shows solid passing skills, he’s able to read the situations and involve teammates when the defense collapses on him ... He has a natural talent in drawing contact, which often leads to free throw opportunities, increasing his overall effectiveness as a scorer ... He’s really improved as a shooter, with fluid mechanics and range behind the three point line ... He shoots with confidence using both pull-up jumpers off the dribble or in spot up situations, with the ability to collect a lot of points in a very short time when he cacthes fire ... With his size and quick first step he’s able to attack the rim effectively, even if he’s not his primary solution. He has the potential to be a good defender with his wingspan and instincts, and he’s already a solid rebounder for the role. The improvements and the evolution he have had over the last year show a good work ethic and will to improve. His style is perfectly suitable for NBA game

Weaknesses: He still has to work on his upper body strength. He has thin shoulders and this affects his effectiveness when attacking the basket ... Despite being an improved shooter, with a fluid mechanic, he might improve his consistency by working on the use of the legs more with his shot, since he tends to use only the arms ... On the offensive side he has to improve the use of left hand, giving him the ability to be less predictable ... The shortcomings in the upper body strength limit his ability to attack the basket, since he tends to be bounced back from rim protectors and in general by the defenders ... His ability to draw contact and to gain free throws is diminished by his poor performance at the free throw line (66% thus far) ... He has the potential to be a great defender, but he struggles a lot in 1 vs. 1 situations, lacking attitude and lateral speed, a red flag that needs to be improved if he’ll cross the ocean ... In general he needs to work on his attitude and body language, he’s aware of his talent but lacks blue collar motivation to do hustle plays ...

Notes: After three seasons spent in ProB (French 2nd division - Antibes), he moved to a solid ABA league team, following the path taken by other French prospects like Lauvergne, Dallo and Westermann ... This transfer was possible also to the solid relations of his agent and the ownership of Mega Vizura, the powerful agency BeoBasket. He’s averaging 16.2 pts and 4.3 rb thus far in ABA league. He was member of France U18 and U20 national teams ...
