NBA Comparison: Ryan Bowen

Strengths: Hustle player who was a versatile defender on both the block and on the wing … Built himself over his college career and added aspects to his game, hard worker … Does not have a very high usage percentage, though he is not especially turnover prone … Strong rebounder, battles on both sides and competed with bigger players … Tough in the post and was also efficient cutting to the basket … Logged major minutes in his last two years, well conditioned, constantly moving … Defended the pick-and-roll well … Very tough on-ball defender, with notable performance coming in the tournament when tasked with Andrew Wiggins … Good timing as a shot blocker, challenged shots well and played good help side defense … Rarely got in foul trouble, even as an aggressive defender

Weaknesses: Not a prolific shooter or ball handler, sort of in between positions as far as the offensive end is concerned … Did not get to the foul line often and only shot 62.7% FT as a senior … Showed very little from long distance, does not stretch the floor much … Gets very little offense with the ball in his hands, was not really efficient as an isolation player … Lateral speed at the NBA could end up being a bit of an issue at times … Measured in weighing less than he did in college, which may lean towards his wanting to play SF, where his ball skills will need a lot of improvement … Never a major playmaker for others in college … Not many moves on offense, will need to work on footwork and counters

Notes: Born in Webster, TX … 2010 Gatorade Player of the Year in Montana for C.M. Russell … Two time All-Defensive Pac-12 selection as junior and senior, honorable mention All-Defensive as a sophomore … Finished with 1,019 points at Stanford … Averaged 11.2 ppg, 8.2 rpg and 1.9 bpg in 35.2 mpg during his senior season … Very good offensive rebounder for a SF, not to mention the length and timing to block shots at a strong rate … In the thick of things in the 2nd round and could be drafted, seems to have earned a spot in Summer League or end up playing pro basketball somewhere …
