NBA DRAFT COMPARISON: BRENDAN HAYWOOD
PLAYER SUMMARY: Hammons is the muscle for the Boilermakers and has Purdue heading to the NCAA Tournament. He was a highly touted player in high school and is now playing like one towards the end of his final season.
Hammons is one of the more highly touted big-men in the Big-10. He has an NBA body right now. He is a legitimate 280 pounds, perhaps more and uses it to his advantage. He sports a 7’3″ wing-span and is a solid rebounder. He is an excellent shot-blocker as he is currently the NCAA’s current active leader and was named the Big-10 Defensive Player of the Year. The Center has a nice little jump-hook and gets a lot of his points on put-backs.
Hammons gets beaten in transition due to his below-average speed/burst. For a player size his rebounding numbers should be higher. He isn’t good passer, however he is asked to provide needed scoring for Purdue. In my opinion, Hammons has a few skills that translate into the NBA, elite shot-blocking ability, and his height. He has a chance to be a solid back-up big-man in the NBA, who can provide solid-minutes off the bench. He has the measurables that you can’t teach.
