2010 NBA Draft Scouting Report: Gani Lawal


Position: Power Forward

Size: 6-9, 235

School: Georgia Tech, Junior


Strengths:
  • Good repetoire of post moves including a turnaround jumper
  • Knows how to use his body to establish position on the block
  • Mid-range jump shot
  • Can put the ball on the floor for a few dribbles to create his own shot
  • Explosiveness at the rim
  • Crashing the boards
  • Length helps him on the defensive end and the glass
  • Lets the game come to him; doesn't force a lot of shots
  • Never stops working inside (great motor)
  • Plays with passion



    Weaknesses:
  • Inconsistent jump shooter
  • Not a great perimeter defender
  • Needs to do a better job of closing out defensively
  • Improved free throw shooter, but needs to show consistency at the stripe

    Summary: Lawal doesn't have superstar potential but figures to be a valuable role player at the next level. At this point of his collegiate career, he is what he is and would probably be best off declaring for the 2010 NBA Draft as he figures to be a first-round lock. He tested the waters last year so if he does declare, he is in for good.

    Player Comparison: Brandon Bass. Bass has been a valuable energy guy off the bench in the NBA, bringing a physicality inside. That is likely the role that Lawal will find himself in at the next level. Both guys have a decent amount of skill, but their hard work and ability to rebound the basketball are their best assets.
