NBA Comparison: Carlos Boozer/Sean May

Strengths: Trey is an extremely skilled offensive player with great footwork ... He has a great face up game and the ability to consistently hit 15-18 ft. shots ... Highly skilled and polished 4 ... Has the potential to be a great pick and pop guy… Consistent right handed jump hook in the post ... Good rebounder who grabs every rebound strong with two hands ... Outstanding outlet passer who also passes well out of the post finding open 3 point shooters ... Smart, fundamental player ... Runs the floor well ... Not a shot blocker but is a solid defender who uses his strength to guard in the post and his 7 ft. wingspan to contest shots ... Good length with a 7-foot wingspan ...

Weaknesses: Not a great athlete. Lacks an explosive vertical which sometimes results in him not finishing around the basket ... Has improved upper body strength but could still use some toning up. Added weight over the summer but it severely limited his mobility and he has since trimmed down. May always struggle to carry a great deal of weight and retain a high level of agility and quickness ... Must improve lateral quickness in order to guard quicker players. Does not appear to have a great deal of untapped potential ...

Overall: Trey is a fierce competitor and a great teammate who is a natural leader on the floor… He is very unselfish and excels at getting teammates open looks… He has a great opportunity to be an immediate starter for John Calipari at Kentucky… With his offensive skill set, if Trey can continue to build muscle and improve his foot speed he has the potential to be a lottery pick in the future ...

Notes: Born in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, Canada ... Measured at 6'9.5 (in shoes) 228 lbs, with a 7'0 wingspan at the 2012 LeBron James Skills Academy ...
