2002 Scouting Report:

Strengths: Strong post player blessed with good hands and excellent post footwork ... Decently athletic player who can run the floor well and is rather quick around the basket for his size ... Above average rebounder who can contribute on the boards thanks to his strength and technique in terms of boxing out ... Gains excellent position in the post and usually after catching the ball he will power dribble to the basket where he will usually finish with a dunk or lay-in ... Baxter’s power game in the post and ability to absorb contact often lead him to easy free throw opportunities ... Owns a variety of low post moves like a drop step and owns a quick spin move that he enables him to get easy baskets ... Understands what his limits are on offense and rarely exceeds them ... Decent shot-blocker despite his is height in part to his great timing ...

Weakness: Height is a key concern among NBA teams as he looks as though he is 6-7 ... Doesn’t always dominate games like he should as he can go through periods of inconsistency ... Not very comfortable facing the basket could stand to add a dependable mid-range jump shot ... Not a very good post passer which makes him prone to double teams … Despite his ability to get to the free throw line rarely does he convert a high percentage of his free throws ... Should work on becoming more comfortable going to his left when playing in the low post ... Doesn’t have the quickest feet which will hinder him defensively ... Not super explosive in terms of leaping ability which explains why he isn’t good at getting rebounds out of position ... Really hasn’t improved all that much so one has to wonder about his potential as he might have hit the ceiling ...
