2012 NBA Draft Scouting Report: Arnett Moultrie


Position: Power Forward

Size: 6-11, 230

School: Mississippi State, Junior


Strengths:
  • Athleticism
  • Strength
  • Plays with great effort
  • Rebounding
  • Natural feel as an offensive rebounder
  • Handles the ball well for his size
  • Nice face-up game
  • Can power dribble attack the basket
  • Solid moves on the block
  • Turnaround jumper
  • Runs the floor well
  • Leaping ability
  • Decent mid-range game
  • Free throw shooting
  • Lateral quickness and long arms makes him an effective perimeter defender
  • Should be able to play either frontcourt position at next level



    Weaknesses:
  • Inconsistent outside shooter
  • Too often settles for jump shots rather than being aggressive and getting to the rim
  • All-around offensive game still could use some polishing
  • Could probably add some more muscle
  • Shot blocking

    Summary: Moultrie has made an even bigger impact in his first year with the Bulldogs after sitting out a year because he transferred in from UTEP. He is a double-double threat on a nightly basis and also has a fairly well-rounded offensive game for someone his size. At the beginning of the season, his projection for the 2012 NBA Draft was somewhere late in the first round, but he is looking more and more like a possible late lottery pick.

    Player Comparison: Al Horford/Jordan Hill. I see Moultrie with a ceiling of Horford and a basement of Jordan Hill. Moultrie has the combination of size, strength and athleticism like Horford with the ability to operate on the block or use his quickness to attack slower defenders off the bounce. If Moultrie fills out a bit more, he could be a center at the next level but is probably better suited playing the four. Both Horford and Hill can play either frontcourt position but struggle against legitamate NBA centers.
