NBA Scouting Reports, Northwest Division (Part One)
August 25, 2008

Overview: A burly Brazilian power forward with very good athleticism, but a largely unpolished skill set. Has great strength for the power forward and center positions. Possesses nice size and length for both positions. Shows great quickness and solid leaping ability when healthy. Has had a hard time staying in shape due to injuries and needs to improve his durability and conditioning. Not a polished offensive threat, but gets the job done with a mixture of brute strength, athleticism, and decent touch. Offers a presence defensively, but struggles with his fundamentals on that end. Didnít venture outside of Brazil before entering the NBA. Seemed likely to live up to his top-ten billing as a rookie and sophomore. Hasnít had a chance to develop significantly due to a laundry list of injuries. Still has a ton of untapped potential.

Offense: Gets most of his offense from post ups, pick and rolls, and offensive rebounds. Has a ton of raw tools, but hasnít had much of a chance to put them together. Possesses great shooting form for a bigman, showing range out to around 17-feet. Shows decent footwork out on the perimeter, and could develop into a nice catch and shoot threat from the high-post down the road. Will face up and shoot with a hand in his face with pretty questionable results. Needs to work on shooting over defenders. Has some nice post moves. Likes to face up when heís posted on the right block, but also shows a nice drop step and spin move combo to free himself up for right handed hook shots. Shows a consistent turnaround jumper over his right shoulder from the left block, but will fall in love with short-to-mid-range turnarounds when he makes one. Will show glimpses of truly impressive post play, making quick spins to the rim for dunks or sealing his man for an easy two, but doesnít do those things consistently. Uses his size and strength extremely well. Will bully his way to the rim is he has to. Goes to the line at a very high rate. Doesnít shoot a good percentage from the line. Very good offensive rebounder. Can be pretty active on the offensive end. Not one to put the ball on the floor to score. Wonít take almost any pull up jumpers. Not much of a passer. Can be a nice asset when healthy and not in foul trouble.

Defense: A productive defender that commits fouls at an extremely high rate. Will be amongst the League leaders in fouls per game despite only playing roughly thirty minutes per contest. Will take himself out of the game with overly physical defense. Needs to pick and choose his spots better at the rim. Will hack his man when heís taking a low percentage shot. Fundamentals need work. Doesnít show great ability defending the midrange, but was once rather effective. Has quick reflexes for a bigman, and will come up with quite a few steals. Capable of blocking some shots, but isnít a major factor coming over from the weakside. Needs to focus on cutting down on mistakes for the sake of his development.
