Summary:

Hasheem Thabeet is one of the best prospects in this year’s draft physically. At 7-2, 260 lbs, he has good size for a 7 footer and is very athletic. His overall game is assessed as still being a bit raw, but he will go high in the draft for teams that need a defensive presence inside quick. Offensively he will need a few years to start really contributing.


Strengths:

- Size and Defensive Presence
- Shotblocking

- Freethrow Ability


Weaknesses:

- Rebounding

- Offensive Footwork and Skillset

- “Project Player”
