NBA Comparison:

Strengths: Near 7’0" center that uses his size very well … Big frame, weighs about 260 lbs with room to add a little more muscle … Solid quickness and speed for his size … Lives around the basket … Scores well in the post because of his size and soft touch … Has a nice looking baby push shot when he turns over his left shoulder, and a developing left-handed hook when he turns over his right … Keeps the ball high and away from any secondary defenders … An excellent mid-range shooter … Has a great looking turnaround jumper, with a feathery touch out to about 16 feet … Very good free-throw shooter (shot over 78% from the stripe in 2011-2012) … Adequate defender … Solid area rebound because of his size …
 
Weaknesses: Not much of an athlete … Doesn’t explode off his feet … Plays below the rim … Lacks great finishing ability … While he has a solid all-around skill-set, he’s not exceptional at anything … Doesn’t have a go-to move or a surefire way to score against NBA talent …
 
Overall:  Hamilton possesses both size and skill, but won’t stand out in the NBA in any way … His potential is limited by his lack of athleticism and he really doesn’t profile as a future starter … However, if a team is looking for size off the bench, Hamilton could prove useful and provide value as a mid-late second round pick …
