Overview: A pure role playing power forward. Has a fairly strong frame, but doesn’t use it much on the offensive end. A below average athlete in every regard by NBA standards. Has made a career with his spot-up jump shot from inside the arc. Doesn’t stand out in any other area. Understands his role and rarely strays from his comfort zone.

Offense: The vast majority of his offense comes from spot-up jumpers in the 12-20 foot range. Conversion rate on mid-range jumper is among the best in the league, but because almost all of his offense comes from there, his overall scoring efficiency is below average. Is very good when wide open, but effectiveness falls off some when shooting off the dribble or when contested. Does a good job drifting to open space without the ball and makes good reads to get in his teammate’s vision on the pick-and-pop. Range extends to just inside the three-point line. Will rarely venture into the post, but has a solid turnaround jumper from 5-10 feet when he does. Doesn’t exhibit any other post moves. Will almost only put the ball on the floor off a shot fake, and doesn’t convert much when he does, relying mostly on a hybrid runner/floater that isn’t very effective. Doesn’t do much off ball cutting to the basket, and while strong, is not a very good finisher. Doesn’t get to the free throw line very much at all. Not a huge transition threat, but is good as a trailer to hit his spot-up jumper. Doesn’t make many turnovers because he usually just catches and shoots. Also doesn’t make many assists.

Defense: A solid post defender who uses his frame along with good fundamental defense. Plays tough and tries to contest shots. Can be shot over by bigger opponents at times. Foot speed is not very good on the perimeter, and is a threat to be taken off the dribble. Sometimes has trouble getting out to contest perimeter shots. Shows good awareness and plays solid team defense. Effort level is very good on defensive end in general. Not much of a shot blocking threat. Not a very good rebounder on either end of the floor.
