NBA Comparison: Clifford Rozier

Strengths: 6’10” big man with an impressive 7’4” wingspan … Finishes well in the paint … Solid mobility and plays on balance ... Good composure for a freshman. Mature ... Can score with either hand … Has an above average right-handed jump hook for his age … Not afraid to move people around in the post … Always finds a body first before going up for a rebound … Solid fundamentals ... Keeps the ball high and away from guards when possessing the ball … Well-built at close to 250 lbs … Solid base, legs like tree trunks … Very hard to move him off his spot when he’s planted … Plays within himself … Doesn’t try to do too many things that he isn’t comfortable doing … Has been a productive player in a limited role (15 minutes per game) … Length helps him finish contested shots … Seeks out contact on offense … Does a good job of using his length to defend … Plays defense inside with arms up and will remain flat-footed as opponent goes vertical … Has a nice looking shot that could potentially develop into a reliable outside weapon … Very coachable player … Tough-minded kid … Has a good feel for the game … Plays with a high basketball IQ for such a young prospect … Should be able to log time at both center and power forward ... Despite not being an big leaper, shows very good rebounding ability, using toughness and good box out tchniques ...

Weaknesses: Not much of an athlete, lacks great explosiveness and run/jump athleticism … Can sometimes get lost in the flow of games … Isn’t the most assertive of players at this point … Doesn’t appear to have the shoulders to support much more bulking up … Might have dropped too much weight in his transition from high school to college … Not great from the free throw line (currently shooting 62.3 % from the free throw line) … When matched against like-sized players he struggles to have an impact … Could lose out on rebounds to more athletic players at the next level … Overly aggressive as a defender at times … Is not ready to contribute to an NBA team at this stage in his development … Too predictable offensively. Must develop more post moves and variety ... Despite his great length, lacks rim protecteion ability (less than one block per game) ...

Outlook: Tony Bradley has been a very good player for North Carolina as a freshman and a rotation player on one of college basketball’s top teams ... However, I believe he needs at least one more year in school to fine-tune his game and get his body right before he should consider making the jump to the NBA ... His wingspan makes him an intriguing prospect, but the all-around skills still have a way to go to catch up, making him a project ...

Notes: Measured 6'8, 234 lbs with a 7'4 wingspan at the 2014 Nike Elite 100 ... Measured 6’10" in shoes, with a 7'4" wingspan and 248 lbs at the 2015 Nike Basketball Academy
