2010 NBA Draft Scouting Report: DeMarcus Cousins


Position: Center

Size: 6-11, 260

School: Kentucky, Freshman


Strengths:
  • Athletic, NBA-ready body
  • Natural scorer down low
  • Solid footwork in the post
  • Variety of effective moves on the block
  • Can finish with either hand around the basket
  • Great agility for a big man
  • Good use of his big body to establish position
  • Runs the floor well



    Weaknesses:
  • Work ethic has been questioned
  • Gets lazy on the defensive end and glass which gets him into foul trouble
  • Needs to control his emotions on the court
  • Seems to be in a hurry when he catches the ball in the post
  • Needs to work on his perimeter game
  • Average free throw shooter

    Summary: Based on a pure talent standpoint, Cousins is one of the best big men in the country. Questions regarding his work ethic and high emotions have scouts a bit on edge about selecting him too high. Cousins has shown an improved matrurity though as he has progressed during his freshman season, and if that continues, he will definitely be considered a lottery prospect as he is likely a one-and-done.

    Player Comparison: Zach Randolph. The parallels between these two are spot on in my opinion. Randolph is a highly skilled big man who has had questions raised about his character. When Randolph is on his best behavior, he is a force on the court; just like Cousins. The Kentucky freshman relies more in his post game than Randolph does, and if he is able to prove to be a team player, he should have a successful NBA career.
