2010 NBA Draft Scouting Report: Epke Udoh


Position: Power Forward

Size: 6-10, 240

School: Baylor, Junior


Strengths:
  • Terrific shot-blocker
  • Leaping ability
  • Great length which helps him on the boards
  • Athleticism
  • Mid-range game
  • Range out to the three-point line
  • Effective facing up to the basket
  • Can put the ball on the floor for a couple dribbles and work for his own shot
  • Uses a hook shot to his advantage due to his long arms
  • Doesn't need to be a scorer to make an impact on the floor



    Weaknesses:
  • Too wirey; needs to add strength
  • Gets out-physicaled in the post by bigger opponents
  • Relies too much on his shot-blocking as a defender
  • Free throw shooting

    Summary: He is only a junior, but because of his transfer from Michigan, Udoh will turn 23 in May, which could influence his decision to turn pro this summer rather than wait until he is 24. His upside is less than younger players, but he continues to improve his all-around game. If he declares for the 2010 NBA Draft, his defensive ability and growing potential would likely land him in the mid-late first round.

    Player Comparison: Serge Ibaka. Like Ibaka, Udoh is a great athlete who uses his length to be very effective on the glass and as a shot blocker. Offensively, both of their games are a work in progress, but have shown the potential for improvement. Udoh will likely begin his NBA career in the same way Ibaka has with the Thunder - as an energy guy who brings defense off the bench.
