NBA Comparison: N/A

Aran Smith – 1/5/2006

Strengths: Long, explosive bigman … Blue collar guy, does the dirty work to help his team win … Has a great attitude, plays hard, wants to improve … Strong defensively … Explosive leaper, with good timing and instincts on blocked shots … Giant wingspan gives him added size … Fights hard for rebounds, hustles for loose balls … Big strong hands, when he gets his hands on a rebound it’s his … Has a big, strong frame and should be able to add another 5-10 pounds without losing much mobility … Should be able to see time at the center position in the NBA … Runs the floor very well, excellent transition game … Good vision and passing ability … Scores well around the basket … Has a nice turnaround jump hook … Knows his limitations offensively and plays to his strengths … Has excellent durability having missed just one game in his college career … Quick feet, very nimble for his size …

Weaknesses: Limited offensively … Scores a majority of his baskets on dunks, put backs and shots around the basket … Struggles from the free throw line … Can get down on himself when things aren’t going well, needs to become better composed … Not a superstar prospect, his upside is limited somewhat by his offensive shortcomings … Needs to develop better offensive post moves … Must develop a consistent mid range jump shot … A little rigid in his upper body, not fluid with his ball skills …
