PWE Draft Preview Daily Prospect: Cliff Alexander

submitted 3 years ago by in Daily Empire | Draft

Cliff Alexander

Draftexpress | ESPN | NBADraft | Stats | Wiki
Big | 6’9 | 240 | Kansas
Projected: 2nd rounder
Best Case: Amare Stoudemire
Most Likely: Thomas Robinson
Worst Case: Joey Dorsey


Highly touted coming out of high school, Alexander is an athletic shot-blocker and strong rebounder who looks to be caught between positions. He lacks range on his jumpshot and has a limited offensive repertoire down low so will be primarily a garbage man type. He does possess the athleticism and speed to finish lobs on the break and in the PnR, much like his comparables TRob and Faried. Alexander is likely going to be best utilised as a small ball center in the modern NBA and his 7’4 wingspan, 9’1 standing reach and weakside shot-blocking skills give him a decent chance of success in this role.
