Bam Adebayo

Strengths
  • Strong player despite lack of height
  • Finishes with power in the paint
  • Very good rebounder. He attacks the glass at both ends.
  • He has nice hands to grab the ball in traffic
  • Mobile player either running the floor or defending on the perimeter
  • Solid, not elite shot blocker
  • Has shown he can step out and knock down a short jumper, so there is potential

  • Weaknesses
  • Undersized for a five, but thats what his skills say he is
  • Lacks the offensive game at this point to be a four.
  • Inconsistent shooter
  • Not much of a post-game
  • Other than knocking down a jumper more consistently I don't see him developing much offense
  • Not very instinctual in most aspects of the game

  • Bottom Line
  • He is not someone who will step right into a rotation in the NBA. It will take time for him to be ready. His ceiling is Bismack Biyombo but not as explosive.
