Overview: An intelligent power forward who can shoot at a decent clip from the outside and rebound at a decent rate. Good size for a shooter, but has alligator arms. Could stand to lose some weight to improve his mediocre foot speed. Doesn’t show a lot of explosiveness. Makes a living as a spot up shooter who doesn’t make mistakes. Doesn’t have the athleticism to be a dynamic player. Plays within his role. Has been a solid player since his days at Florida. Clearly understands how to play the game, and what he needs to do to maximize what he has. Brings a lot to the table as a spot rotation player. Won an NBA Championship with the Spurs in 2007. Role might grow once Robert Horry retires.

Offense: A solid offensive player who is asked to function as a set shooter from the perimeter to create matchup problems at the power forward position. Gets more than half of his touches as a spot up shooter. Displays a pretty ugly jumper, but it is tough to argue with its consistent results. Shoots the three at a very respectable clip. Does a very good job spreading the floor. Great catch and shoot guy. Functional from the midrange as well. Doesn’t do much damage off the dribble. Will find ways to score around the basket. Good feel for scoring in general. Won’t shoot a good percentage with defenders around him, but finds ways to get open. Moves extremely well without the ball and knows when he can get an easy basket. Will grab some offensive rebounds. Passes well for a post player, and knows how to take care of the ball. Fits his role perfectly.

Defense: A very mediocre defender. Gives a good effort, but lacks the athleticism or length to stop most players at his position. Will get routinely beaten off the dribble. Has the bulk to defend the post, but isn’t going to hinder most players. Tries his best, but is still just an offensive specialist. Rebounds at a decent clip, despite his mediocre wingspan. Would be a liability on other teams, but has found a very comfortable niche in San Antonio.
