2010 NBA Draft Scouting Report: Al-Farouq Aminu


Position: Small Forward

Size: 6-9, 215

School: Wake Forest, Sophomore


Strengths:
  • Exceptional athlete who thrives in the open floor
  • Terrific off the bounce when attacking the basket
  • Great ball-handler
  • Dangerous along the baseline
  • Leaping ability
  • Improved free throw shooter which will be at important at the next level due to his slashing ability
  • Very active on the glass
  • Length makes him an effective defender
  • Good strength ready for the next level



    Weaknesses:
  • Poor outside shooter
  • Plays a little out of control at times especially in one-on-one situations
  • Can be a much stronger finisher at the rim rather trying to make the fancy acrobatic-like shot
  • Needs to sharpen up his defensive skills
  • Too often finds himself in foul trouble

    Summary: Aminu is a well-rounded small forward who has yet to come close in reaching his full potential as a basketball player. For a player his with his size and strength, his all-around skill set is outstanding. Many people were surprised he chose to return to school after his freshman year as he almost certainly would have been a lottery pick which he will certainly be this year.

    Player Comparison: Marvin Williams. Like Williams, Aminu is a very talented player especially on the offensive end. Williams has been unable to live up to expectations and put it all together and that will be an issue for Aminu who has been a high prospect since arriving at Wake.
