2013 NBA Draft Scouting Report: Jeff Withey


Position: Center

Size: 7-0, 235

School: Kansas, Senior


Strengths:
  • Size
  • One of top shot blockers in college hoops
  • Timing as a shot blocker
  • Help defender
  • Length bothersome in passing lanes
  • Solid rebounder
  • Active on the offensive glass
  • Mobility for a seven-footer
  • Rarely gets into foul trouble
  • Puts forth great effort
  • Decent back to the basket game
  • Right-handed hook shot



    Weaknesses:
  • Limited offensive game
  • Mid-range jumper
  • Uncomfortable with the ball on the perimeter
  • Will need to get stronger
  • Defending on the perimeter

    Summary: Withey has continued to blossom in his senior year at Kansas, developing into one of the best rim protectors in college basketball. Due to a limited offensive game, I am not sure that he is anything more than a career backup in the NBA but size is always needed at the next level, and his ability to block shots could earn him late-lottery looks.

    Player Comparison: Omer Asik.

    Lacking a ton of mobility or athleticism, Asik has developed into a double-double NBA big man because of his size and activity on the inside. While it seems highly unlikely that Withey will ever put together a season like Asik has this year in Houston, the Jayhawks senior could be a very solid reserve like Asik was last year in Chicago.
