malick-badiane The Draft Review - The Draft Review houston The Draft Review - The Draft Review

2003 Scouting Report:

Strengths: Exceptional athlete who can run the floor and leap like few can at his size ... Defensively Badiane shows above average shot blocking instincts, this coupled with his long arms and leaping ability make him quite a presence ... Although he can be physically outmatched he does a great job of getting rebounds ... Excellent finisher in transition where his leaping ability enables him to finish with flair... Solid ball handler for someone with his size ... Great out of position rebounder... Has a tremendous work ethic and is very coachable ... Has loads of potential... Shows above average touch around the basket on put-backs and lay-ups ... Really looks to attack the rim on every possession ... This aggressiveness allows him to draw a good number of fouls from his defender... Decent passer who plays unselfish ... Solid offensive rebounder who wastes little time on put-backs ... Has three point range on his jumper when his feet are set... Long wingspan and mobility allow him to be an adequate help defender... Plays the game with a tremendous amount of energy and desire ...

Weakness: Offensively he is still a work in progress, as he does not have much in his repertoire ... Will need to add more muscle to his upper body if he is to stand the physical play of the low post... Still learning basketball's fundamental aspects as he has gotten by with his athletic gifts ... Doesn't have a full understanding of the game ... Can be turnover prone when he rushes himself... Doesn't always make the greatest court decisions ... Post foot work is unrefined although with his great coordination this could be quickly relieved ... Can pick up quick fouls when playing defense as Dadiane can be over aggressive ... Will need to be more consistent with his mid-range jumper... Lacks the strength to gain good position on the block ... Back to the basket skills will need to be improved as they are limited ... Not all that comfortable when double teams occur as he doesn't always recognize them in time ... Despite the fact the he draws fouls his below average free throw shooting stops him from taking full advantage ... Might be a project for whoever drafts him should expect to invest a year or two before expecting anything significant... Defensively he has a bad habit of trying to go for every shot... Rumors has been rampant that his age could be false ...
