Frank Kaminsky NBA Draft Scouting Report

7-0 - Center - Wisconsin

A highly talented center with a great shooting touch and good feel for the game.

Pros
Has an ideal skill set for the pro game: great shooting touch to go along with a 7-foot frame. Can really stretch the court and will be a tough match up for traditional centers.

Plays with high basketball I.Q. and moves the ball well. Takes smart shots, makes smart passes and uses ball fakes well.

Shows good timing on defense and gets a good number of blocks and steals. Isn't a true defensive stopper but can hold his own.

Cons
Not a powerful player and only an average athlete.  Could be overpowered at the next level and will have to gain strength/weight.

Comparisons
Has a lot of the same skills as Ryan Anderson with his shooting ability, drop step move and offensive rebounding. Also reminds of Nikola Mirotic.

Projection: late lottery to mid first round pick in the 2015 NBA Draft
