NBA Role: (raw) athletic power forward UnderDOG

For years and years, the Grizz have lacked a substantial collection of pure athletes – drafting LSU’s Jarell Martin (2015, 25th overall) was a low-risk, high-reward selection & signals a small (yet important) shift in strategy; raw but explosive – Martin’s strong frame and good size complements his play style at big forward; high-octane athlete who is learning to play more under control – tough to deal with along the lines of a younger Tobias Harris (DET) • same body type – Martin should study how Bias uses similar size and quickness to make plays on offense); good basket driver, has the strength to absorb contact & power through; decent J but Martin must make triples at a 35%+ clip to continue to keep defenders honest; plays too fast, must ramp up defensive intensity – better suited to defend 4s
