NBA Comparison: Matt Bullard
Stengths: At 7’1" Alec not only has legitimate NBA center height but also is one of the best shooters in the 2014 NBA Draft … He consistently can hit shot after shot from well beyond the 3 point line … With 29% of all his shots taken from 3 he was able to make them at a 42% clip and an overall field goal percentage at 47% … He displays good agility, height, and a solid understanding of his offensive strengths … He can run the floor and is a very dangerous trailer hitting the top of the key jump shot or the occasional dunk … And his strength in the pros should be as a stretch 4 or 5 and used as a pick and pop player on the offensive end. On the defensive end he was also able to average over 3 blocks per game. Coming from a mid major Alec was able to give a positive impression to scouts at Adidas Nations while going against some of the best players in college basketball.
Weaknesses: Alec’s lack of physical strength is an obvious weakness, as he shies away from contact and struggles to play in the post against bigger and stronger opponents … Despite having great height at center his lack of strength would make him a liability on defense and he may not have the strength to guard an NBA center and instead rather be used in a zone or as a 4 … Also because of his lack of strength he has difficulty creating shots for himself in the post … He will need to improve his defensive prowess to become a rotational player at the next level … His rebounding statistics of 5.7 per game is not at the level you would like for a 7 footer in a mid major conference … Furthermore statistically speaking there are two outlier games against poor competition that benefited his overall statistical average where he had a triple double including 10 blocks versus Minnesota-Duluth and a 40 point game versus Fairfield … Alec had an opportunity in his non conference schedule to play Wisconsin and go head to head versus Frank Kaminsky and played arguably his worst game of the season fouling out in 18 minutes, with 5 turnovers and scoring only 2 points … Unfortunately for Alec, the trend of poor games with foul trouble against top opponents continued throughout the season as he failed to reach double figures versus Virginia, Wisconsin Milwaukee, and Belmont …
Notes: Measured 7’1 (in shoes) 212 lbs, with a 7’0 wingspan at the 2011 Amare Stoudemire Skills Academy …
