2003 Scouting Report:

Strengths: Back to the basket moves are highly advanced ... Runs the court very well for a player his size ... Solid rebounder who really does a good job boxing his man out under the glass ... Keeps the ball high and doesn't put it on the floor when in the low post ... Good finisher around the basket where he can convert a number of shots with ease ... Tough minded player that doesn't shy away from contact ... Great passer for someone his size ... Uses his body to create contact in the lane to draw fouls ... Sees double teams before they occur... Versatile in that he stretch the opposing defense by shooting out to the 18 foot jumper ... Has the ball handling ability to create shots of the dribble ... Although 19 he already has 3 years of international experience and loads of potential... Really gets himself wide in the post to give teammates a good target to pass into ... Patient offensive player that rarely tries to exceed his physical limits ...

Weakness: Can be a little foul prone as he is still learning how to play effective low post defense ... Needs to continue to add more upper body strength to his physique ... Will have to upgrade his ball protection as he is still a little careless with the ball ... There has been many rumors circulating around about his age although he is listed as being bom in 1984 some say it is more closer to 1982 ... Post footwork has improved tremendously over the past two years but could still stand some refinement ... Pachulia still has to work on learning how to think the game through ... While he is athletic he isn't a explosive enough leaper to be a premier shot blocker... Shows soft touch from mid-range but he will need to display the confidence and consistency to make the shot ... Not what you would call a fluid player as his movements are a little mechanical ... Still a undeveloped prospect who wasn't given much actual game time to develop his game this past season ...
