Weaknesses:
  • Needs to improve as a pick and roll defender
  • Athleticism
  • Explosiveness
  • Guarding quicker players on the perimeter

    Summary: Sullinger surprised many by turning down a likely top five spot in the 2011 NBA Draft and choosing to return for his sophomore year. He is a beast down low and loves throwing his body around and being physical in the paint. The former two-time Mr. Ohio Basketball is not the greatest athlete in the world which might make his transition to the NBA a little more difficult, but he is still a lock to be a top-10 pick if he declares after his sophomore campaign.

    Player Comparison: Elton Brand. Brand came into the league somewhat limited by his 6-9 height but made up for it with his ability to out-physical his opponents. That describes Sullinger perfectly. The Buckeye sophomore does not yet have the perimeter game that Brand did when he entered the league but should make a similar impact from the get-go.
