has jumped early onto some people's 2008 mock drafts, but he has hardly backed up that consideration. Of course, the Russian is a guy who enjoys some unique physical characteristics, basically the fact that he has superb size at 7-1 and with a nice wingspan, while he certainly displays some athleticism and good coordination. Still, he is extremely skinny, while his frame doesnt show promise for the future; lets just say that his body looks one of a power forward at best. Besides, his skill set is rather limited, being awfully erratic with his jumper, and not showing any particular ability to put the ball on the floor. On the other hand, we have to say that he doesnt seem to back off from contact, although his poor strength obviously limits his ability to operate in the paint.
