DAL Center: 7’0, 260 lbs; 2nd year, Purdue

NBA Role: (raw) backup pivot UnderDOG

AJ Hammons fell to the second round of the 2016 Draft – he’s intriguing at 7-feet, 260 but never quite put everything together at Purdue; good all-around skills but Hammons hasn’t always brought the right mindset in the past – susceptible to going w/ the flow instead of imposing his will; good touch in the paint, can score short hooks, floaters & midrangers; can he protect the lane v. NBA athletes? – Hammons sent a lot of shots packing in college but avoiding fouls and keeping up w/ fast paced styles will be a challenge; likely to spend time in the D-League – Coach Carlisle needs to see a meaner version of AJ before he’s awarded w/ extended PT

Signature Shot: TBD.
