2012 NBA Draft Scouting Report: Renardo Sidney


Position: Power Forward

Size: 6-10, 270

School: Mississippi State, Junior


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
  • Overall effort
  • Conditioning
  • 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

    Summary: His problematic history has been well documented and as a result, an NBA team would be foolish to give him the guaranteed money of a first-round pick (at least I'd hope so.) He still has the size and skill that NBA teams covet and will certainly get plenty of second-round looks. If Sidney is ever able to put it all together, he could be a second-round steal, but that will be a major barrier for him to overcome.

    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.
