2012 NBA Draft Scouting Report: Henry Sims


Position: Center

Size: 6-10, 245

School: Georgetown, Senior


Strengths:
  • Terrific passer
  • Length
  • Solid athleticism
  • Runs the floor well
  • Brings good energy to the court
  • Ability to power dribble to the right and get to the rim
  • Quick spin move on the block
  • Rarely forces the issue; takes what is given to him
  • Basketball IQ



    Weaknesses:
  • Mid-range game
  • Touch around the basket
  • Limited moves on the block
  • Aggressiveness on the glass
  • Slightly undersized to be a center; not skilled enough to be true power forward

    Summary: After massively underachieving for his first three years at Georgetown, Sims has had a breakout senior season which has given him some buzz as a likely second-round pick. NBA teams are always in need of size and there are not a lot of true big men in the 2012 NBA Draft, so Sims should hear his name called.

    Player Comparison: A poor-man's Joakim Noah. This is a bit of a stretch but there aren't a ton of big men who possess the passing ability of Sims. Noah is one of them, and like Sims, the Bulls center has a fairly limited offensive game and relies on his energy to be a productive NBA player. In no way do I think Sims will ever be a starter at the NBA level like Noah, but the two do have similar skills.
