sofoklis-schortsanitis The Draft Review - The Draft Review clippers The Draft Review - The Draft Review

2003 Scouting Report:

Strengths: Solid athlete who can run the floor very well and possesses above average leaping ability ... Because of his strength he is able to get excellent position on the blocks ... For his size he shows great agility around the basket ... Does a very good job at drawing contact in the lane and more importantly once contact occurs he has the strength and body control to finish ... Has shown the ability to hit the 18-19 foot jumper when needed ... Has soft hands which allow him to catch most passes thrown into the post ... Plays every game with passion and intensity ... A player who is not easily intimidated ... Due to his aggressiveness and size he is a great offensive rebounder... Is a solid passer for a player his size and age although his decision making is still a work in progress ... On tip-ins and lay-in's he displays soft touch around the basket ... Defensively he has very quick hands capable of intercepting most passes ... Smart defender who will often allow his man to front him once the pass is made and has enough quickness to quickly jump in front for the steal ... Owns a solid work ethicand has the desire to be great not just good ...

Weakness: Has a bad habit of picking up quick fouls due to over aggressiveness when guarding his man ... Needs to work on recognizing double teams better as he is often slow to react to them ... Fundamentally he is a little behind in his development as he has had to play out of position for his team ... Offensively he still has a tendency to rely too much on his back to the basket power game instead of concentrating on face up skills ... Height is inflated, although Shortsianitis is listed by "some" at 6-11, he looks to be between 6-8 Vz to 6-9 Vz ... Despite his ability to draw contact in the lane, his below average free throw shooting inhibits him from taking full advantage of his opportunities ... While he has range on his jumper, he lacks consistency ... Tends to put the ball on the floor rather than immediately going up with the ball after receiving it in the post... Although a solid rebounder he is still learning how to get rebounds out of position although with added game experience this should be less of an issue ... Defensively he is not a great shot blocker as he is still learning defensive footwork and timing...
