NBA Comparison: Kevin Willis

Aran Smith – 3/3/2006

Strengths: Athletic European with inside/outside game … Very skilled big man. Knows how to play close to the basket, but excels outside … His coordination and height are a great combination … Plays very well on the perimeter, jump shot out past 20 feet is consistent … Even knocks down the three point shot … A real offensive threat with great form and confidence in his jump shot … Plays very aggressively … Has a scorers mentality … Nice quickness … Loves to face the basket … Good ball handler for a PF … Has good rebounding ability with good leaping and good second and third jump ability … Very strong legs … Plays hard, good attitude …

Weaknesses: Not the classic banger of a power forward … Lacks the foot speed to defend small forwards … Must become better defensively … Lacks a great back to the basket game … Needs to develop better consistency … Should look to get more arch on his shot … Lacks the frame to add significant weight, his shoulders are small and seem completely filled out … In the NBA his lack of bulk will likely hurt him rebounding …

Notes: Has been one of the top players in his age group in Europe for some time … Won MVP of the 2004 Global Games competition in Dallas … Developing well under maybe the top coach in France, Gordon Herbert.
