#24•MAS. PLUMLEE

C • 6’11, 255 lbs; 7th year, Duke

UNDERDOG

NBA ROLE: ATHLETIC PIVOT

 

Mason Plumlee: an underrated backup 5 in the NBA; Nuggets are young and like to play uptempo, which suits Mason’s game to a tee – runs the floor well; will jam on you in transition – or after a miss – but isn’t a super polished offensive player – struggles to score outside of 15 feet, midrange J needs more work (slight hitch, shoots a bit slow); needs to add a few more moves while posting (& facing) up; extremely confident ‘slip playmaker’ – Mason opens himself up after setting hard screens up top – catches the rock, stays patient & dishes to an open guy; sets strong screens, helps create space for guards; N. Jokic's primary backup, plays well in 15-20 min. stints
