2010 NBA Draft Scouting Report: Dexter Pittman


Position: Center

Size: 6-10, 290

School: Texas, Senior


Strengths:
  • Incredibly strong and physical inside
  • Establishes great position in the post
  • Finishes at the rim with authority
  • Has a nice baby hook
  • Soft touch around the hoop
  • Length helps him on the boards and dunk over opponents
  • Good shot-blocker
  • High character kid



    Weaknesses:
  • Has lost about 90 pounds since his freshman season but still needs to work on his conditioning as he averages less than 20 minutes a game
  • Struggles running the court and getting back on defense
  • Not very quick laterally
  • Limited with his jump shot
  • Free throw shooting

    Summary: Pittman has worked himself into first-round status as he continues to be a dominant presence in the paint. His stamina is still a major concern and until he gets in better shape, he will likely be nothing more than a bench guy averaging 12-15 minutes at the next level. But still, his size and efficiency when he is on the court makes him worthy of a first-round pick.

    Player Comparison: Eddy Curry. Since entering the league, Curry has shown flashes of being a dominant big man but has never been able to put it all together due to weight issues. Pittman faces similar questions as he finishes his college career. If he can get in better shape and avoid injury issues, he should be a more productive pro, but for now, their games and size are very similar.
