2007 Pre-Draft Scouting Report by Matthew Maurer

Assets
Plays the game with great intensity and rarely backs down from a challenge on the court … For his size he is extremely mobile, capable of running the court with ease and possesses solid quickness for a power forward … Good finisher around the basket and because of his mobility is excellent finishing in transition … Court vision is refined, does a great job recognizing the open man … Because of this double teams rarely effect him … Decent shot blocker with good timing and excels as a help defender in this capacity due to his great lateral movement … Plays passing lanes well thanks to his quick hands … Gets a number of steals by reaching over his man in the post and then poking the ball out as it is passed into his assignment … Tremendous ball handling ability enables him to play the high post and occasionally dribble drive to the basket … Does a good job rebounding out of position … Back to basket skills have shown some improvement thanks in part to his post footwork … Shows the ability to make the jumper from mid-range, decent touch on his shot … Plays with a mean streak when challenged … Displays a good feel for the game … Does a decent job of drawing fouls from his defender … Versatile in that he can score in numerous ways depending how the defense is playing him.

 

Liabilities
For all his versatility, much of it is lost on the next level due to his inability to play small forward and his lack of a real post game ... Has excellent ball handling ability but his lack of foot speed means he is stuck solely at the power forward position ... Does not own a great feel for playing post offense, no real post moves ... May struggle with mobility should he add more weight ... Gets easily frustrated with teammates and opponents when things aren’t going his way … Defensively he has a habit of being overaggressive if he has to guard a physical post player … Rebounding is improved but needs to work on boxing out better as he relies too much on his athleticism … May need to work on his leg strength as he doesn’t deny post position very well … Still prone to playing inconsistent, something that plagued him last year … Has struggled this year to be a leader as his emotions can get the best of him … Not a big fan of physical contact, will often spend too much time complaining to the referees about contact instead of staying focused on the game … Possesses perimeter shooting ability but lacks consistency to convert with regularity … Truly excels facing the basket as his back to the basket moves are improved but are still unrefined …

His plight in the pros is a sob story. I feel bad for him.
