2012 NBA Draft Scouting Report: Andre Drummond


Position: Center

Size: 6-11, 275

School: UConn, Freshman


Strengths:
  • Size
  • Strength
  • NBA-ready body
  • Incredible athleticism for a big
  • Runs the floor well
  • Ferocious finisher at the rim
  • Shot blocker; ability to alter shots at the rim
  • Help defender
  • Strong rebounder
  • Tremendous upside



    Weaknesses:
  • Very raw on the offensive end
  • Post moves on the block
  • Shooting touch
  • Free throw shooting
  • Handling the basketball
  • Defensive fundamentals
  • Gets lost around screens
  • Too lazy on box outs

    Summary: It only comes along once in a while that an 18-year-old possesses the size, strength and athleticism that Drummond does. While he is still very raw in his all-around development, the sky is the limit for the UConn freshman, which is why he will likely be one of the top three picks in the 2012 NBA Draft. It likely will take him a year or two before he is ready to be a consistent NBA contributor, but he has the tools to be the next dominant big man in the league.

    Player Comparison: Dwight Howard/Kwame Brown. Will he be the next Dwight Howard or the next Kwame Brown? Both Howard and Brown entered the league at a young age, but loaded with potential, which is why they were No. 1 picks. Drummond looks the part but until he spends a couple years in the league, it is hard to get a real gauge as to whether he will be a flop like Brown, or make the most of his gifts and turn into a franchise center like Howard.
