Kristaps Porzingis 2015 NBA DRAFT

Kirstaps Porzingis, C, Latvia, 7-0, 1995Scouting Report:



Strengths:
  • Long wing span
  • Block shots
  • Rebounds well
  • Pretty mobile for a big man
  • Good form on jump-shot
  • Big hands

Weaknesses:
  • Raw offensive game
  • Plays a little soft
  • Needs to get stronger
  • Gets pushed around easily in paint against stronger players

Player Comparison: Darko Milicic
This might sound like an insult, but there was a time when Darko Milicic was a
terrific prospect, that I feel never had an opportunity to develop his raw skills. I see the
same here with Porzingis. If given the chance to develop his strength, and offensive game,
and the team that drafts him is patient, in time he could be a solid starter. For right now he
is a huge project.
