NBA Comparison: Anderson Varejao

Strengths: A big, strong, athletic big man prospect, who has a smoothness to his game ... Superb athleticism and surprising ball handling ability and footwork make Auguste a deft face-up power forward prospect ... He punishes the rim with his dunks, and he's been known to attack the rim from all the way on the perimeter as well as take the ball up the floor himself on the fast break ... His athleticism and tenacity also make him a very good rebounder, as he averaged over 10 boards a game last season...Shot a whopping 56% from the field last season...Great at getting putbacks and tip-ins around the rim...Shows soft hands catching entry passes and finishing alley-oops. Excellent pick-and-roll player...Good at coming over from the weak side to block shots ...

Weaknesses: Very limited offensively. He can get to the basket and he can finish above the rim, but he has very few post moves, nor does he have any kind of range on his jumper ... Might be more inclined to play center, but at 6'10", he doesn't have the size to do so, and as is, may get pushed off the block at times guarding NBA 4's ... This could very well be indicative of an inability to make the transition to matching up with NBA bigs, as his athleticism and decent size won't be nearly as big of an advantage ... Statistically, Auguste is a good rebounder, but that skill may not translate as well as NBA defenders may have a much easier time boxing him out ... Often plays too passively on the offensive end, although he made an impact much more consistently this past season...Not a particularly sound defender, either in the post, or on the perimeter...Will turn 23 in July, which is very undesirable for a man his size...

Overall: Struggled against teams with NBA size and talent, as evidenced by subpar performances against Duke, Virginia, Iowa, and his last two games against UNC ... Auguste is a skilled and athletic power forward who can put the ball on the floor and finish above the rim, but his post skills are a bit lacking and his age will definitely be a factor working against him. His chances of being selected are slim, but despite his advanced age for a big man prospect, he could yet develop into a serviceable NBA 4 thanks to his unique skillset...

Notes: Earned All-ACC Third Team Honors... From Teams measured: 6'9.25" Barefoot, 7'1.25" Wingspan , 8'11.75" Standing Reach, 241 lbs, 33.25 Max vertical
