2010 NBA Draft Scouting Report: Omar Samhan


Position: Center

Size: 6-11, 260

School: St. Mary's, Senior


Strengths:
  • Great feel around the basket
  • Outstanding footwork
  • A plethora of moves in the paint
  • Soft touch on his turnaround jump shot
  • Effectively utilizes a hook shot
  • Does a nice job of finishing after contact
  • NBA-ready body
  • Basketball IQ
  • Holds his position on the defensive end
  • High character guy



    Weaknesses:
  • Athleticism
  • Explosiveness, not a great leaper
  • Lateral quickness on defense
  • Unproven perimeter game

    Summary: Big guys who have a natural feel around the rim are seemingly becoming more and more difficult to find at the next level which is why Samham might have a chance to find a home in the NBA. His lack of athleticism will be a major concern for NBA general managers, which puts him on the borderline of being a second-round pick or going undrafted.

    Player Comparison: A less-athletic Nenad Kristic. Samhan isn't quite as athletic and doesn't have the face-up game that Kristic does, but their ability to score the basketball around the rim using fundamental post moves is very similar. If you took Kristic's skills in the paint and combined it with Brad Miller's build and mobility, that would be a more accurate description of Samhan.
