My Tibor Pleiss scouting report


So i watched the Germany game against Australia yesterday, I watched every possession tibor was on the court and left with these observations

 

 

He's very active and better moving laterally then i thought he would be. He's equally comfortable shooting with either hand, had a nice lefty hook off the glass that was Gasol esque. He deferred alot, often pulled out of his position early to set screens for other players. This could be from him being one of the younger least experienced players on the team. He only got one clear post touch and with that he made a nice turnaround move and left a fadeway jumper short. He also has a better feel then i expected, he is good in the screen and roll but needs to hold longer. Defensively he defends the rim well, he seems to have a mindset similiar to Ibaka in that he wants to contest anything in the paint. He's not afraid to mix it up, he battled against Australian bigs who probably had 30 to 40 lbs on him and held up well. His lack of strength limits him from rebounding out of his area but anything in his area he either comes down with or tips out to a teammate. It also limits him as a finisher, a few times he showed well off the pick and roll, made a nice catch, gather and rose quickly but couldnt finish through contact. He didnt take a jumpshot in the game so i wasnt able to analyze that but he has nice hands and soft touch. All and all i was very encouraged by what i saw, i really see his only problems come from a lack of strength and experience. My opinion is that he's 2 years from helping us but i think he could eventually be a starting caliber center.
