Accolades: Fourth Team High-Major All-American – CHN (08), All-Tournament Team – Portsmouth Invitational (pre-draft camp) (08), West Regional All-Tournament Team (08), Second Team All-A-10 (08), A-10 Sixth Man of the Year (08), A-10 All-Tournament Team (06).
Scouting Report: A big man who can step out and knock down threes.
Strengths: Good NBA size for a power forward. Long wingspan. Good strength. Great three-point shooter for a big man. Excellent free throw shooter. Smart player.
Weaknesses: Didn’t play in one of the “power” conferences. Despite playing four years in college, never averaged more than 22.4 minutes/game. Not an NBA-level athlete or jumper. Doesn’t pull in nearly the amount of rebounds you’d like to see from a post player. His senior season was his only year averaging in double figures in scoring.
Projected 2008 Draft Range: Late second round pick to undrafted.
Consensus: Duncan might find his way to the end of an NBA bench due to his size and ability to step out and knock down threes.
