C • 7’0, 265 lbs; 11th year, Ohio State

SALTY DOG

NBA ROLE: OFFENSIVE-MINDED PIVOT

 

Kosta Koufos is another ‘third’ big getting it done in the Association; won’t play heavy minutes, demand a certain number of touches or have many sets catered towards getting him buckets – Koufos isn’t about the stats, he understands & accepts his position, while realizing the significance of fulfilling his role; nice post scorer – good hands, loves lil runners & quick hooks; likes sweeping right-handers, goes up w/ purpose after handling dump-off passes; active defender: hard-working 7-footer – Koufos keeps his arms straight up while contesting shots (struggles w/ lateral lockdowns & closeouts, protecting the paint is a more natural fit); has perfected the role of ‘recurring guest’ – goes above & beyond his usual’s night’s work if a top performer is injured, offers plenty of intangibles* during sporadic appearances on a fully healthy roster; utility/backup 5 for Dave Joerger – his role shouldn’t change one iota moving forward

 

*Koufos is a great screen-setter – gives his guard enough room to roam and create an open shot
