Francisco Caffaro, 6'11, PF/C, El Trebol, 2000

-Good size for a 4/5. Frame that will fill out nicely in time
-Extremely mobile big man. Bouncy off two feet
-Shows some ability to back down opponents in the low post
-Uses his body to create space
-Shows some intriguing skills inside the post.
-Tremendous target as a roll man. Soft hands and very quick off his feet
-Finds creative ways to finish with touch around the basket
-Shows some potential putting the ball down in a straight line
-Draws a lot of fouls by virtue of his quickness for a big man
-Gets up around the rim for offensive rebounds
-Will show some flashes at times of putting a body on opponents in the post
-Only 16 years old. Still at a very early stage of his development, physically, emotionally, skill-wise and in terms of his overall maturity

-Neither a prolific (11.5 points per-40) or efficient (45% TS%) offensive player at the moment for his career
-Struggles to make free throws (42% career, 55% at U17s)
-Really poor defensive rebounder. Horrendous 4.8 defensive rebounds per-40 for career. Struggled even worse at U17s (3.7 per-40) in Zaragoza
-Never boxes out. Lets rebounds fly right over his head
-12-15 months younger than most of the big men here, and it showed. Will get pushed around
-Awareness on defense and as a rebounder leaves a lot to be desired. Only averaging .6 steals and .6 blocks per-40 minutes on career.
-Poor pick and roll defender
-Doesn't know how to protect the rim. Didn't register a single block in 110 minutes at the U17s
-Doesn't do any work early defensively. Lets opponents get deep position on him. Gets backed down inside
-Not always strong enough with the ball offensively. Takes some very difficult shots inside the paint
-Approach to the game is not consistent at all. Highly reactive if things aren't going his way. Sometimes decides not to run the floor.
-Very emotional

Outlook Talented Argentinean big man who did not have a very good tournament overall (9.7 PER). Moves exceptionally well and has some power forward skills. Looks far more talented than how he actually plays. Hasn't been productive in any setting yet. Really looked out of place at the Jordan Brand Classic international game practices and game. Shows some toughness at times, but looks very soft in other occasions. No consistency in his approach.
