2010 NBA Draft Scouting Report: Hassan Whiteside


Position: Center

Size: 7-0, 235

School: Marshall, Freshman


Strengths:
  • Length
  • Athleticism
  • Strong finisher
  • Cleans up the glass
  • An absolute terror in the paint on defense
  • Shot blocking, ability to alter shots
  • A good frame that continues to fill out as he gets older
  • Loads and loads of upside



    Weaknesses:
  • Relies too much on his shot blocking which causes him to coast on the defensive end
  • Offensive game is still raw
  • Needs to develop a consistent outside shot
  • Comfort in handling the basketball especially when double-teamed down low
  • Must become stronger and more physical to truly reach his potential

    Summary: Whiteside's stock is on fire. He has pretty much come from nowhere to be one of the most intriguing prospects in college basketball. While he still needs to develop his all-around offensive game, his stock is soaring so it might be hard for him to turn down the possibility of becoming a top-five pick. Wherever he ends up, that team will have to be patient in letting Whiteside develop, but the potential is definitely plentiful.

    Player Comparison: A poor man's Dwight Howard. Whiteside reminds me of a young Howard due to his length, rebounding and shot-blocking abilities. Howard was not polished offensively when he first came into the league and pretty much got most of points on dunks or offensive putbacks, which is where Whiteside is earning his buckets. Whiteside has the frame to fill out and be a physical specimen that Howard has become. I admit the Howard comparison is mighty lofty so right now think of Whiteside as a DeAndre Jordan-type.
