2011 NBA Draft Scouting Report: Renardo Sidney


Position: Power Forward

Size: 6-10, 270

School: Mississippi State, Sophomore


Strengths:
  • Skilled back-to-the-basket player
  • Throws his body around inside
  • Establishes good position on the block
  • Knows how to absorb contact and still finish around the rim
  • Quick on his feet and pretty agile for a big guy
  • Good touch around the rim
  • Great hands
  • Mid-range game
  • Three-point range



    Weaknesses:
  • Serious red flag due to character issues
  • Concerns about his coachability and desire to help a team
  • Lacks a toughness you would expect from someone his size
  • Not a tenacious rebounder
  • Moving his feet on the defensive end
  • Defensive effort
  • Needs to get in better shape

    Summary: As if there were not enough red flags surrounding Sidney, the latest fight with teammate Elgin Bailey in the stands during the Diamond Head Classic kills his NBA Draft stock. No team will give him the guaranteed money of a first-round pick so he will have to hope that someone takes a second-round flier on him despite all these character issues. More than likely, Sidney has D-League written all over him if does declare for the draft this summer which seems very likely due to his status at Mississippi State being up in the air.

    Player Comparison: Zach Randolph. From their early maturity issues, to their big bodies, to their ability to step out and knock down mid-range jumpers; this comparison seems pretty spot on. If Sidney can ever it figure it out like Randolph eventually did, the skill set is there for him to be a talented NBA player. That is a big "if" though.
