NBA Comparison: Brad Daugherty

Strengths: Young center with excellent size and coordination ... Runs the floor well possessing very good mobility ... Has a great frame, showing the ability to carry a lot of weight and remain fast and athletic ... Strength shouldn't be much of an issue for him at the next level after a season or two ... A stellar defender with good lateral quickness, especially for his size ... Has a versatile offensive game with solid post skills as well as the ability to face up and hit midrange and outside shots ... a fiery competitor, he gets agitated when he's beaten or challenged, and generally channels it in a positive way ... Possesses a very nice shooting stroke with the form to extend his range to the NBA 3 point line ... Showed the ability to knock down the college three, having hit 10/21 on the season (47.6%) ... Solid rim protector and shot blocker averaging 1.7 boards per game in limited minutes ... Plays on balance, and doesn't rush things ... Not afraid to mix it up and seems to enjoy contact ... Does a good job of forcing contact and getting to the free throw line ... Has good hands, with good control of the ball on post entries and rebounds ... A very effective socrer, with a 67.8% eFG% according to Hoop-Math.com ... Gutsy player. Showed the ability to be a clutch shooter hitting a huge three in the closing minutes against South Carolina in the Final Four ...

Weaknesses: Remains somewhat unproven having played sparse (17.3 mpg) minutes as a back up to Przemek Karnowski in his freshman season at Gonzaga ... Hit 74% from the FT line and while solid, with his form and touch he should be in the 80s ... Can improve upon his overall feel for the game and decision making ... Lacks great vision and passing ability, had just 16 assists on the season, and can be forced into mistakes with double teams ... The majority of his season was against the WCC, meaning that he didn't play a ton of NBA caliber bigs ... Being a freshman that played limited minutes in a smaller conference will mean he has a sharper adjustment curve upon entering the league ... May need to be careful with fouls at the next level as he fouled out of the Xavier game in the tournament in just 13 minutes ...

Notes: Possesses a solid, 7'1 wingspan ... A 2016 McDonald's All American ... Was overshadowed in high school at Bishop Gormon in Las Vegas playing behind upperclassmen Stephen Zimmerman and Chase Jeter, but has blossomed into a much bigger prospect than the two ... Averaged 10 points and 6 boards in just 17.3 minutes per game as a FR at Gonzaga ... Had a monster 14 pts, 13 rebs and 6 blocks, and a clutch three pointer in the closing minutes, proving instrumental in Gonzaga's Final Four win over South Carolina ...
