2010 NBA Draft Scouting Report: Luke Harangody


Position: Power Forward

Size: 6-8, 255

School: Notre Dame, Senior


Strengths:
  • Knows how to throw around his big body down low
  • Has a knack for cleaning up the boards
  • Nice mid-range game with ability to knock down the triple
  • Unorthodox yet very effective turnaround jumper
  • Variety of low-post moves
  • One of the few players in college basketball who uses a running hook shot in the lane
  • Great touch around the basket
  • Deceptively quick for a guy his size
  • Goes 100 percent all the time (has a "high motor")



    Weaknesses:
  • Undersized to be an NBA power forward
  • Major lack of athleticism and explosiveness
  • Defense will be a concern on the next level especially on the perimeter
  • Often times lets his emotions get the best of him

    Summary: The Irish senior projects as a second-round pick. He lacks the ideal height and athleticism to be an NBA power forward, but his shooting ability and scoring instincts should give him a chance at the next level. A playoff-caliber team could take a chance and take him in the late first round, but with the 2010 NBA Draft class shaping up to be power forward-heavy, that seems unlikely.

    Player Comparison: Glen Davis/Kenny Thomas. Harangody reminds me of Davis in that both players know how to use their big bodies and have soft touches around the basket. Like Davis, Harangody's lack of athleticism will hurt his stock, but he could be a second-round steal. Big Baby does not have the outside shooting ability that Harangody does, which is why I added the Thomas comparison because Thomas is an undersized scoring four with range from the perimeter.
