Weaknesses: Should set better picks to exploit more pick and roll situations. Nonetheless hes a guy who gives a strong effort and plays with intensity … Apart from that, his balance is just okay and he doesnt always enjoy a soft touch near the basket … Draws few fouls in general and still lacking lot of game knowledge (experience)… His strength has shown improvement in the past year but remains a big hurdle for him. He moves very well for a player his size, but there are questions about how additional weight will affect his mobility …
Outlook: With still 2 years left until his final draft year (2010), he still has a big margin to become a sure first rounder. However his situation with his actual team in France and the limited minutes hes getting, might push him to decide to leave his name in the draft earlier. Right now hes surely not ready yet to play with any NBA team, so NBDL or Europe would be his options in that case. But his chances appear pretty good to land in the first round this season should he decide to go for it …
Scouted @: 7-10/02/2008 Semaine des As (French Cup), Toulon, France
Weaknesses: Extremely skinny, must add around 30-40 pounds He is easily outmuscled by players with above average strength Could suffer the same fate as Jonathan Bender if he is not able to add weight and settles for playing outside too much, but he does show a willingness to mix it up inside, and his upper body shows signs that he can put on a good amount of weight Still very young, must stay hungry and not buy into his own hype Must develop better post skills Back to the basket game must be developed
Notes: Pronounced: Al-ex-i A-Jin-Sa Plans on staying in Europe and turning pro before entering the NBA. His father was a wrestler from the French Islands, his mother is from France.
