2003 Scouting Report:

Strengths: Solid athlete who runs of the court well and is an above average leaper... Post footwork is superb for a player his age and could be the best in college among NBA center prospects ... Has a nice assortment of low post moves when his back is to the basket... Uncommon for most big men Kaman is capable of finishing around the basket with either hand ... Tough kid who enjoys physical contact in the lane ... For his position he is a very good free throw shooter... Shows soft touch on his turnaround jumper... Understands how to utilize the glass on his hook shot in the lane ... Extremely aggressive when it comes to getting position on the blocks ... Does a good job of keeping the ball high after receiving it... Because of his aggressive play he draws a good number of fouls from his defender... Decent shot blocker who uses his above average leaping ability and long arms ... Not a bad post passer out to the perimeter even when being constantly double teamed ... Solid rebounder due to his level of athleticism and hustle ... Offensively he shows great shot selection as he doesn't try to stray from his strengths ...

Weakness: Needs to add more upper body strength to aid him in the post... Defensively he will have to work on playing better positional post defense as he relies on shot blocking ability a little too much ... Level of competition will be a question mark but to his credit he has shown that he can play with the big boys ... Could stand to expand his shooting range out to 15-16 feet from the basket... Doesn't always get his body wide enough when establishing himself in the lane ... This can at times effect the guards from getting him the ball effectively ... Double teams can trouble him when he fails to recognize them quickly ... Can at times be a little overaggressive and pick up cheap fouls ... Will need to work on his rebounding fundamentals such as boxing out... Needs to improve on rebounding out of position more effectively ... Although he shows great timing on his blocks, he tends to bite on pump fakes from time to time ... Will need to improve his stamina with added conditioning ... Could stand to gain 15-20 pounds of muscle to his body ...
