curtis-borchardt The Draft Review - The Draft Review orlando The Draft Review - The Draft Review

2002 Scouting Report:

Strengths: Could be the most skilled center in the draft offensively as he has some nice moves facing the basket … Excellent rebounder due to his hustling attitude and long arms because of those traits he is very good at getting rebounds out of position … Moves well without the ball often he will come up and set a high screen and then roll to the basket or take the mid range jumper … His range on his jumper allows him to play in a high post offense as he can shoot from 19 feet out … A elite shot-blocker Borchardt can change the dynamics of a game defensively … Despite being a semi-quick leaper it’s his super timing that he posses that makes up for any physical limitations … Unlike many big men he is very good at recognizing double teams and on top of that is a very capable passer from the post … Plays with a lot of emotion and doesn’t back down from anyone … Descent runner down the court as he is semi-athletic … Owns a soft touch around the basket capable of converting a high number of short bank shots or quick put-backs … Does a good job of keeping the ball high when moving around in the post … Soft hands capable of catching most lobs thrown into the lane … Has played with a ton of confidence this year something that plagued him a little over the past two seasons …

Weakness: Health will be a major issue for any team drafting him as he has injured his right foot for the past two seasons … Surprisingly his behind the basket skills are still in the developing stages … Needs to add weight and strength to his body which should really benefit him with his low post development … Because of constant leg injuries Borchardt’s foot strength is still behind with added strength it could help him in terms of durability … Doesn’t hold position all that well on the blocks as he is often pushed off when playing against bigger defenders … When posting up he doesn’t make himself all that wide which make sit hard for teammates to get a good angle when passing into the post … Defensively he is still learning how to play defense in the post without having to rely on blocking shots things like defensive footwork are a few areas of needed improvement … For a player with such a soft jumper it is kind of a mystery on why he is a semi average free throw shooter …
