Janis Timma was a very up and down player in this tournament, but he is nevertheless intriguing as a long-term prospect.

Timma is certainly a player who catches your eye on first glance. He has great size for a wing player at 6-7, to go along with a good frame and very fluid athleticism. He has the physical tools needed to play at a high level down the road. He's explosive in transition and is capable of doing a little bit of everything offensively.

Timma's mechanics are in need of serious refinement--he bends his knees deeply on each attempt—but he's capable of making shots from the perimeter. He can also put the ball on the floor and finish nicely around the rim in transition. However, he needs to improve his ball-handling skills in order to fully take advantage of his quick first step. Right now he's all too comfortable settling for jumpers from beyond the arc, which is a shame considering his physical tools.

Defensively, Timma again has potential, but he doesn't show great focus or intensity on that end of the floor, something his team surely could have used at this championship.
