2011 NBA Draft Scouting Report: Jan Vesely


Position: Power Forward

Size: 6-11, 240

School: Czech Republic, 1990


Strengths:
  • Three-point range
  • Catch-and-shoot ability
  • Runs the floor well
  • Can board then lead the break
  • Body control when driving to the hoop
  • Leaping ability
  • Not afraid to try and dunk over opponents
  • Length helps him as a shot blocker
  • Intensity



    Weaknesses:
  • Needs to get stronger
  • Physicality
  • Rebounding
  • Quickness as a perimeter defender
  • Back to the basket game is still developing especially against quality big men
  • Creating his own shot off the dribble

    Summary: Jan Vesely chose not to enter the 2010 NBA Draft despite being a likely lottery selection. That decision has seemingly paid off as he has made a major impact overseas against some of the better competition in Europe. His versatility and athleticism for a 6-11 player is incredibly appealing to NBA scouts, and as his body develops, he should only become more dangerous in his all-around game. It is because of that he is being projected as a possible top-five pick.

    Player Comparison: Andrei Kirilenko. Vesely has a long way to go in becoming the defensive player that AK47 has been in the NBA, but their length and athleticism are very similar. Both players make an offensive impact at the rim and have been inconsistent outside shooters, but Vesely has shown growth his his all-around offensive game. Kirilenko can play either forward spot in the NBA and Vesely should be able to as well.
