2003 Scouting Report:

Strengths: Unlike many young players his age, Perkins is not infatuated with playing on the perimeter. He plays strictly a power game and is capable of dominating the low post ... Fundamentally he has added various offensive moves, from a drop step, to an up-and-under, and even the rarely utilized jump hook which he can shoot over most defenders ... Perkins is very mobile around the lane and he has no problem running on the break despite his size ... Has an excellent pair of hands that can catch most passes thrown into the post ... Once there, his soft touch around the basket allows him to convert easily ... Does a good job of drawing contact to bait his defender into fouling ... Has shown decent passing skills when double teams occur ... Physically he has an NBA build that has yet to fill out ... An above average rebounder who uses his body to gain good position under the glass ... Possesses solid footwork on defense enabling him to stay in front of most defenders ... Each year he has developed in some area of his game ... Work ethic remains strong despite all the hype ...

Weakness: Athletically he is not what you would call a high flyer ... Despite the numbers he will not be the super shot-blocker that he is in high school due to his average leaping ability ... Body wise he has the weight to play in the pro's but he needs to focus on getting his body better conditioned as the NBA will be faster and more physical ... Could stand to add a more consistent jumper 15 feet from the post ... Post footwork needs refinement... Doesn't always play aggressive during games, and has a tendency to play down to the level of his competition although to his credit, he steps his level of play up when facing top competition ... Shot selection, while not bad, can suffer along with his confidence if things aren't going well and he will force shots ... Needs to develop better moves when facing up on his defender, as he's more comfortable banging down low with his back to the basket ...
