Ondrej Balvin NBA Draft Scouting Report

7-2 - Center - Czech Republic

Huge center with decent mobility but lacking as an offensive player.

Pros
His great height is an obvious plus, allowing him to alter a lot shots in the lane and grab rebounds over other players.

Has pretty good hands and is developing some good post moves. Shows good footwork with a nice drop step and spin.

Has decent mobility for such a large player but won't be confused with Dirk Nowitzki any time soon. Gets off the floor well and plays above the rim with his great height and length.

Cons
Has a lot of work to do to develop his offensive skills. Is not a threat from mid range and does not shoot free throws wells.

Projection: second round pick in the 2014 NBA Draft
