Diamond Stone NBA Draft Scouting Report

Credit: Jessica Reilly
NBA Draft Prospect Diamond Stone

6-10 - Center - Milwaukee, WI

Mammoth center prospect with good strength and surprising skill level.

Pros
Rock solid big man who controls the lane with his size. A wide-bodied player with good height. Is solid on defense and is quicker than you'd think for a big center.

Has soft hands and a decent array of moves for a young big man. Very willing passer who has nice court vision from the low post or passing down from the high post.

Cons
Lacks explosiveness and is not a great athlete. Needs to get into better shape to gain speed and leaping ability.

Projection: possible first round pick in the 2016 NBA Draft
