HYBRID

NBA ROLE: DEFENSIVE-MINDED, HYBRID FORWARD

 

Al-Farouq Aminu has reaped the rewards of countless hours in the gym; a hustle-guy turned hybrid forward, Aminu has adapted very well; broke out w/ Blazers through versatile defense & (much) improved aggression offensively; nice slasher, has developed some consistency from downtown (raised his 3-point percentage around 37%, which is a welcome sight); though Aminu has natural basketball ability, repetition has helped him improve; ridiculous motor combined with an endless wingspan – Aminu puts up double-doubles by moving without the ball on offense & snagging any board that comes near his area; jumper doesn't have the best aesthetics but hey, it’s not bad from the corner!; no longer an afterthought – team is usually at its best when Aminu’s on the court; signed w/ Magic – adds nice depth, rangy defender alongside Jon Isaac & Aaron Gordon
