roots The Draft Review - The Draft ReviewBrother: Marc Gasol
2001 Scouting Report:

Strengths: Good face up shooter can shoot from the perimeter as far as the 3-point line ... Runs the floor well loves to operate in the open court for the dunk ... Due to his excellent height Gasol can shoot over most defenders ... Creates mismatches due to his ability to play multiple positions (SF, PF, C) ... Can dribble past most defender for the penetration once there he can dish to the open teammate ... Smart player is a quick learner and can adjust his game according to how the defense plays him ... Has a nice pull up jumper off the dribble ... Some scouts have said that Gasol reminds them of Toni Kukoc but I must say he resembles a more polished Robert Horry ...

Weakness: Not very good playing with his back to the basket ... Doesn't have the best upper body would stand to gain more muscle ... Not a very good defender doesn't have the intensity, or the speed to guard fast players ... Needs to gain about 10-15 pounds depending on what position (PF/SF) he will play... Could stand to develop some moves in the low post ... Shot selection isn't as good as it should be needs to relax more and let the game come him ... The team drafting him might have to wait until next year to receive Gasol as he has one more year left on his contract with Barcelona ...
