NBA ROLE: DEFENSIVE-MINDED CENTER

 

7-foot center Jakob Poeltl is a defensive-oriented big at the 5; during his first few years in the league, he's earned trust as a designated Watch DOG, is embracing his role as second unit rim protector; growing more comfortable offensively, Poeltl gets buckets by flashing down the lane with short Js, midrange shots, and staying active in the paint; plays very well off guards (keeps hands up, frequent recipient of quick dump offs in the lane); below average wingspan; must learn to exploit mismatches more effectively; generating offense after screening, better finishing around the basket + hitting a consistent 15-18 footer are Poeltl’s primary priorities; sleeper in San Antonio?
