Isaiah Hartenstein NBA Draft Scouting Report

6-11 - Power Forward - Germany

A powerful and skilled post player who looks like the next great big man to come from Germany

Pros
Has a great combination of size and skill. Has long arms, broad shoulders and good athleticism to go along with a soft touch around the basket and an expanding offensive game. Scores really well in the post and has a variety of moves, with both hands.

Has a great feel for the game and a knack for being in the right place at the right time. Has a nose for the ball and rebounds well.

Demands a double team in the post and is a wiling passer with nice court vision.

Gets up and down the court well and has good coordination and mobility.

Cons
Still young and unrefined. Will have to make a big adjustment to the NBA game. Can he bang in the post at the NBA level?

Comparisons
His ceiling is Brook Lopez. His floor is Cole Aldrich.

Projection: mid first round pick in the 2017 NBA Draft
