2010 NBA Draft Scouting Report: Charles Garcia


Position: Power Forward

Size: 6-10, 230

School: Seattle University, Junior


Strengths:
  • Athleticism
  • Explosive finisher known for some highlight reel dunks
  • Runs the floor well
  • Ball-handling for a guy his size
  • Ability to attack the basket
  • Good range on his jump shot
  • Tough matchup in that he can post up smaller defenders or take bigger, slower guys off the dribble
  • Quick spin move on the block
  • Length is a major asset
  • Has great upside



    Weaknesses:
  • Tends to space out on the defensive end
  • Gets whistled for dumb fouls due to a lack of discipline on defense
  • Decision-making as he sometimes tries to be too much of a point guard-type with his passes
  • All-around offensive game needs to be polished
  • Inconsistent outside shooter
  • Free throw shooting
  • Needs to do a better of job of handling double teams
  • Aggressiveness on the glass and as a shot blocker

    Summary: Garcia blew up early on for Seattle University in his first year of Division I college hoops, earning him a lot of buzz as a potential first-round pick. However, as the season wore on, Garcia struggled to show the dominance he displayed early in the 2009-2010 season. Due to his size, athleticism and potential, he will likely get several second-round looks but will need to groom his game before he can crack an NBA rotation.

    Player Comparison: Earl Clark. Garcia reminds me of Clark in that he is a tremendous athlete for someone his size. Both players are at their best when attacking the basket due to their ability to take defenders off the dribble and finish with authority at the rim. Clark entered the league with a ton of upside and like Garcia, who will need to polish his outside shot before he is a consistent contributor at the next level.
