2010 NBA Draft Scouting Report: Daniel Orton


Position: Center

Size: 6-10, 255

School: Kentucky, Freshman


Strengths:
  • Great shot blocker
  • Long wingspan
  • Strong rebounder
  • Fundamentally sound on defense
  • NBA-ready body
  • Strength and physicality for his age
  • Good athlete for someone his size
  • Lots of potential



    Weaknesses:
  • Must do a better job of throwing his big body around down low
  • Limited range with his jump shot
  • Offensive post up game needs to be fine tuned
  • Free throw shooting
  • Tends to commit dumb fouls
  • Inexperienced

    Summary: Despite coming off the bench all season long, Orton has declared for the 2010 NBA Draft. He has shown the ability to be a solid defender but has a long way to go before he is a factor at the next level on the offensive end. Still, his big body and potential should be enough for him to be a first-round pick although it is highly unlikely that he will make an immediate impact for whichever team takes him.

    Player Comparison: a poor-man's Marcus Camby. Camby has been one of the best rebounders and shot blockers in the NBA for the past decade-plus. Orton will not be that much of an impact player but should make a living in the league by crashing boards and blocking shots and not because of his offensive game, just like Camby.
