Kaleb Tarczewski NBA Draft Scouting Report

NBA Draft Prospect Kaleb Tarczewski

7-0 - Center - Arizona

A rock solid center with good NBA size. Rebounds and defends but doesn't stand out in any one area.

Pros
Has true NBA center size and controls his size well. A legit 7 footer with broad shoulders and good strength. Displays very good body control in the lane and even though he doesn't have high end athleticism, he's a more than capable athlete and gets up and down the floor well.

Showed an improving post game with a decent jump hook. Scores well on put backs and from within 5 feet.

A solid defender and rebounder who gets good position and uses his physical tools well.

Cons
Tarczewski is a poor free throw shooter and lacks a constant mid range jumper. Must improve his post offense. Is only an average shot blocker.

Hasn't shown much improvement during his college career and isn't an "upside" player.

Projection: possible second round pick in the 2016 NBA Draft
