Kennedy Meeks

Strengths
  • Strong space eating big man
  • Skilled scorer in the post
  • Highly efficient in the paint
  • Excellent passer who makes the right play
  • Great hands catching the ball off the rim, in traffic in the half court, or in transition
  • Solid overall rebounder
  • Great offensive rebounder
  • Decent shot blocker for his lack of athleticism
  • Agile footwork inside for his size

  • Weaknesses
  • Not overly athletic
  • Does he lack conditioning or is his weight under control?
  • Slightly undersized
  • He will struggle to defend away from the basket due to a lack of quickness
  • Plays well below the rim and elite length and shot blocking may cause him issues inside

  • Bottom Line
  • He reminds me a bit of Sean May and Sheldon Williams. And he is likley to have the same issues they had. He is worth a look in round 2 but he will need to work hard to stay around for awhile.
