2010 NBA Draft Scouting Report: Artsiom Paakhouski


Position: Center

Size: 6-11, 260

School: Radford, Senior


Strengths:
  • Great strength and build
  • Leading rebounder in the nation
  • Has a knack for the ball on the glass
  • Shows a soft touch on his jumper
  • Nice hook shot
  • Establishes solid position on the block
  • Runs the floor well



    Weaknesses:
  • Still a work in progress on the offensive end
  • Free throw shooting
  • Goes through phases where he lacks intensity especially when attacking the glass
  • Footwork in the post
  • Handling double teams
  • Help defender

    Summary: The Bealrus native is very physically imposing especially in a smaller Big South Conference. His size and strength are his biggest assets, but he is still raw in his all-around feel for the game. He will likely be a second-round pick due to his build, but needs some serious work on his pure skill set before he can really make any sort of impact at the next level.

    Player Comparison: Marcin Gortat. Like Gortat, Parakhouski is a physical post player who uses his size and strength rather than his basketball ability to make him effective on the court. Gortat is really nothing more than a career backup who gets most his points around the basket, which is likely how Parakhouski will make his living in the NBA.
