NBA Comparison: N/A

James Burbridge – 8/19/2006

Strengths: Good size and hustle for a big man … Has shown significant improvement considering he only started playing basketball a few years ago … Shows solid agility for a bigman … Fights for rebounds; its refreshing to see his level of energy on the floor, especially from the post … Led the team in offensive rebounds … Was second to SG/SF Brandon Rush in rebounds at 5.3 per game but played just under 20 minutes per game …

Weaknesses: Hands around the basket are a weakness; most of his points come off hustle and put back dunks … Needs to develop a go to move in his junior year … Free throws could use a lot of work, shooting only 53% from the charity stripe … Needs to pound the glass this season to prove he can rebound at the next level … May struggle for additional playing time this year with a full stable of bigmen at KU with Giles, jackson and incoming freshman Darrell Arthur …

Notes: Junior year is going to prove to be make or break for Kaun … If he can show the same kind of improvement he displayed between his freshman and sophomore year, he could be in for a big year and could climb up the draft board …
