DaKari Johnson NBA Scouting Report

Credit: Steven Maikoski
6-10 - Center - Kentucky
A big, bruising center who makes up for his lack of athleticism with solid footwork and a good skill level.

Pros
Strong as a bull with good post moves and ability to finish in the lane. Has an expanding repertoire of post moves and shows a decent looking jumper out to 12-15 feet.

Rock solid defender in the lane with good understanding of positioning and how to use his body to the fullest. Excellent rebounder with a nose for the ball.

Cons
A below the rim type player with limited athleticism. Doesn't get up and down the floor very well and needs to get into top shape to reach his potential. Doesn't project as a top level shot blocker.

Projection: mid first round pick in the 2015 NBA Draft
