2010 NBA Draft Scouting Report: DeShawn Sims


Position: Small Forward

Size: 6-8, 235

School: Michigan, Senior


Strengths:
  • Nice inside/outside game
  • Good mid-range jump shot
  • Loves operating along the baseline
  • Uses shot-fake to get defender in the air
  • Quickness and footwork in the post
  • Active on the glass especially on the offensive end
  • Length helps him on the defensive end and on the boards
  • Athletic enough to guard on the perimeter



    Weaknesses:
  • Ball-handling
  • Will have to become better off the bounce at the next level
  • Inconsistent three-point shooter
  • Free throw shooting

    Summary: Sims has played out of position the past two years for Michigan, ultimately being their center on the floor. He is a bit of a tweener in that he is not physical enough to be a true four at the NBA level, and is not effective enough with the ball in his hands or as a perimeter shooter to be a true three. He likely ends up being taken in the late second round (if he's even drafted).

    Player Comparison: Dante Cunningham. Cunningham and Sims both played the center position for their respective teams late in their collegiate careers despite being undersized. Because of that, they are both more physical than their height would suggest and each can knock down mid-range shots, but struggle off the bounce. Cunningham has earned a spot off the Blazers bench after being a second-round pick. Sims will likely have follow Cunningham's lead to land a spot on an NBA roster.
