Overview: A veteran big-man who has had some problems with his consistency in recent seasons. Not as quick or as explosive as he used to be. Was once an incredibly versatile and skilled power forward. Has transitioned into something of a shooting specialist. Shares the record for most three-point field goals made in a single game. Suffered through a number of injuries after leaving UCONN, but has put together a nice career nonetheless. Wrist injuries slowed him down a season ago, but he rebounded with a good shooting stint with Philadelphia. A free agent this summer, and may be forced to finally hang them up.

Offense: Gets most of his touches off of spot ups. Has an extremely consistent stroke. Can get his shot off with little trouble due to his height. Can’t put the ball on the floor effectively anymore. Is a charge waiting to happen when he decides to take his man off the dribble. Can finish at the rim, but needs to have an angle. Isn’t athletic at all at this point. No longer nearly as efficient as he was earlier in his career. Doesn’t shoot a good percentage from the line. Is a decent offensive rebounder, and does an above average job of getting position underneath on the shot. Good passer for his size. Rarely turns the ball over, which is a nice luxury for a role player. Can put the ball on the floor, but not to get into position to score.

Defense: Doesn’t have the quickness to guard most forwards. Uses his long arms to grab rebounds and loose balls. Will block a shot from in close every now and again. Has a hard time denying dribble penetration. Can guard undersized centers. Does an adequate job of making his man work to get open shots underneath. Is essentially an offensive specialist off the bench who gives some nice residual value on the defensive end due to his experience, but not in many matchups.
